FAQ

Where can I participate in a beach or river clean-up?

We are not a beach cleaning organisation. However we prefer to focus our efforts on prevention methods in order to stop plastic reaching the oceans in the first place. However beach cleaning is necessary and a great way to raise awareness.

If you would like to take part in one, you can visit the National Trust’s website and find a beach clean near you. Visit their webpage here.

Where can I reclaim ocean plastic?

The best place to try find ocean plastic would be from beach cleaning organisations. If you are based in the South West, Beach Guardians organise these regularly and may be able to point you in the direction. Please contact Emily Stevenson for more information at: emily@beachguardian.co.uk

Surfers Against Sewage also arrange beach cleans and you can look for upcoming events at: www.sas.org.uk

Additionally our Facts Behind Plastic Pollution page provides some more useful resources to facilitate your learning.

Are you a grant giving organisation?

Unfortunately we are unable to provide grants to those undertaking expeditions or scientific fieldwork overseas, at school, university or post‐graduate level.
