I will be there with the Surfers Against Sewage Beach Clean Box. It has tubs, bags and gloves and a single pair of grabbers, so if you have your own please bring them. I have some information about what marine litter we may find and also about the beach environment.

Surfers Against Sewage & Ecover Call For Volunteers To Help Clean Beaches & Dramatically Increase Marine Plastic Recycling
Ecover join our call for community volunteers to join the Big Spring Beach Clean this April (3rd – 9th April) to help clean up beaches nationwide and recycle over 50,000 plastic bottles as part of their 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 we 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.
