Swapping fish and chips for gloves and litter picks, it will be all hands-on deck as the team take part in the national ‘Great British Beach Clean’ across Redcar, Hartlepool and Seaham beaches.
Volunteers across the country will be taking part in the national beach clean supported by The Marine Conservation Society.
The yearly event not only cleans our beaches, but provides important data for The Marine Conservation Society.
Over the last 25 years, volunteers have helped make some of the most significant impacts on beach litter – the plastic bag charge, microplastics banned in personal care products, better wet wipe labelling, and massive support for a tax on ‘on the go’ plastic single use items.
Victoria Brunton, owner of accommodation, conference and event management specialist, Hospitality Guaranteed said:
“After reading such startling statistics in the Ellen MacArthur Foundation report – The New Plastics Economy: Rethinking the future of plastics, we have all tried to reduce our plastic consumption. We have made a conscious effort to get involved with our local communities and after researching what we can do to help, we came across the Great British Beach Clean.
“We have been operating nationally from the region for 13 years and the whole team is eager to help make a difference to their local beach. We would love as many of you to come and join us to make a small difference.”
Amanda Jackson, owner added:
“We are all seeing the horrendous effects of plastic in our daily lives via the media and around our local areas. For our team and supporters to be involved with The Great British Beach Clean is amazing, we all need to take some responsibility and try and make even a small change as this can make a huge difference”
Hospitality Guaranteed are calling out for as many people to get involved to not only help gather important data and to clean the beach, but to see the effects of litter first-hand.
There’s no cost to attend, but they ask you to book in advance so they are aware of numbers.
