In May we’ll be celebrating 20 years of the NMA! As part of those celebrations we’re running 20 beach cleans on every weekend from March the 31st to June the 3rd. We want YOUR help to come along to meet our host team and help us clean up our local environment.
It’ll be a great series of events for all ages and a perfect way to feel good about contributing to a cleaner, safer ocean. All you’ll need to bring are some sturdy shoes and clothes to prepare for all weathers, and yourselves! We’ll provide bags and gloves.
Plastics have been in use widely for over 50 years, and every piece of plastic created still exists today. We’ll be sorting out all the rubbish we find to be recycled and reused again. This will help save marine life such as seabirds or turtles who might swallow plastic when mistaking it for food, which causes serious harm. As plastics break down into small pieces, they can be eaten by the smallest plankton and accumulate until they reach the top predator on the food chain! Through this, plastic can enter the fish we like to eat, so no piece of plastic collected is too small!
So why not pop along to one of our beach cleans and turn it into a fantastic day out!
