Event:
Stop the Pollution
Let's face it rubbish is unpleasant, in our homes, on our streets and in our environment and there is no doubt that rubbish left in and around our beaches has a devastating impact on animals, marine life and plant biology.

We see photos of our stunningly beautiful beaches, all pristine and white and rubbish free, but is that the reality? These photos do not generally show the high levels of plastic, nets, fishing gear, detergents, fertilisers and sewage choking our oceans. They also do not show the excruciating pain suffered by animals and marine life when these pollutants and consumed blocking breathing passages and stomachs.

So what can we all do? We all have a responsibility to ensure that we do not add to the problem and take all rubbish away from our beach excursions to dispose of responsibly, but there is also a need to remediate what is already clogging our beaches and oceans.
