The 6th Annual Autumn Beach Clean Series, run by Surfers Against Sewage in association with The Crown Estate and the Greggs Foundation, is currently calling for 200 lead volunteers to manage the beach cleans. These leads will provide opportunities for more than 4,500 people to help clean up beaches during the event, which takes place between 24th – 30th October.
Litter in marine environments has a negative effect on wildlife, human health and local economies. Studies suggest there may be up to 3,000 items of litter per kilometre of beach in the UK, with trillions more pieces floating around in the ocean.
