SAS Big Spring Beach Clean New Brighton
April 14 @ 14:00 - 16:00
In the last decade, the Big Spring Beach Clean has grown into one of the largest and most impactful marine conservation actions in the world. However we believe that this year is different, this year there is light at the end of the tunnel in the journey towards Plastic Free Coastlines, a light that recently became an explosion of ‘ocean plastic awareness’ thanks to the ‘Attenborough effect’ of Blue Planet 2!
The Big Spring Beach Clean will convert this explosion of awareness into positive action by asking each of our volunteers to record and share the presence of millions of items of ‘avoidable plastics’ with the Governments Treasury consultation on single-use plastics (as well as removing and recycling thousands of kilos of marine debris).
Using the hashtags #AvoidablePlastics and #PlasticFreeCoastlines, this mass data collection will provide the Government with ‘Un-Avoidable’ evidence of the urgent need to introduce upstream solutions to reduce single-use plastic.
Join a group of local people on New Brighton beach for the Biggest Spring Beach Clean EVER!!!
