With the global plastic pollution crisis on the rise, we face more and more devastating consequences for our marine life, delicate ecosystems and endangered species. Dwindling fish stocks which support thousands of jobs in coastal communities are directly affected while demand for seafood and resources grow. 50-70% of our oxygen is generated by our oceans, this is threatened by overfishing and oxygen-depleted dead zones caused by harmful fertiliser and sewerage run-off. Habitat’s are further disrupted and whole systems destroyed by toxic dumping practices, oil spills, seismic activity and alarming warmth and acidification linked to climate change.
Our beach clean-ups are collaborative events; uniting local businesses, NGOs, clubs, individuals and families through the common goal of mitigating these effects. Our key focus is reducing our contributions to landfills through zero-waste practices at every clean. We collect data for research and statistical purposes as well as to monitor, evaluate and improve our effectiveness.Further to that, we encourage and support eco-bricking for non-recyclable waste.
