Surfers Against Sewage & Ecover Call For Volunteers To Help Clean Beaches & Dramatically Increase Marine Plastic Recycling

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) and Ecover call on community volunteers to join the Big Spring Beach Clean this April (3rd – 9th April). Helping to clean up beaches nationwide and recycle over 50,000* plastic bottles as part of the Ecover Ocean Plastic Bottle Project.

The Big Spring Beach Clean has fast become the biggest and boldest beach clean project in the UK, with tens of thousands of volunteers participating around the UK coastline over the last 5 years. This April SAS & Ecover will welcome over 10,000 volunteers at hundreds of community events across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Marine plastic pollution is Surfers Against Sewage’s priority issue and the charity is delighted to be joining forces with Ecover, who have pioneered the use of reclaimed marine plastic in their limited edition Ocean Plastic Bottle since 2014. The Big Spring Beach Clean will help remove 50,000 plastic bottles from UK beaches, recycling many into reusable, refillable Ecover Ocean Plastic Bottles in 2018.

 Communities across the UK have already registered hundreds of community beach clean events, with individuals, schools, fellow NGOs, community groups and businesses stepping forward. Surfers Against Sewage now invite you to register and lead your own Big Spring Beach Clean as part of this community-driven project. Their beach clean team make organising your event easy, inclusive and enjoyable, so please drop SAS an email today with the name of your favourite beach at [email protected] or call 01872 553 001.
