Surfers Against Sewage is proud to announce the 5th annual Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project, kicking off on Saturday 14th April at Bournemouth, Hengistbury Head. Building on the huge success of 2011’s incredible series of events, the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project will run throughout the spring and summer, covering 14 locations nationwide.
“Barefoot Wine is very proud to be working with Surfers Against Sewage for the fifth year in a row to help keep Britain’s beaches ‘barefoot friendly’”, said Barefoot Wine Marketing Manager, Yona Ellis.
The 2011 Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project saw over 1100 volunteers remove 2.5 tonnes of litter from the UK’s coastline, and 2012’s series of events aims to encourage more people to keep the UK’s beaches barefoot friendly. After collecting an Barefoot Wine/SAS volunteer t-shirt and any necessary kit, volunteers will hear more about SAS’s environmental campaigns and spend a hour or so collecting litter along their local beach, and end the day with a celebratory glass of Barefoot Wine.

Dates and locations for the tour are as follows:
Britain has the thirteenth longest coastline in the world and our beaches provide a fantastic day out for everyone but currently there are almost 2,000 items of marine litter for every km of the UK’s beaches. One of the most found items of litter is cigarette butts with approximately 4.5 Trillion cigarette butts are littered across the world each year. Laid down end-to-end they would reach around Great Britain’s coastline over 4000 times.
SAS Campaign Officer, Dom Ferris says: “At SAS we witness the impact that marine litter is having on our beaches every day. This project will give the UK’s proud coastal communities an opportunity to make a real and noticeable difference to the health of our precious coastline. This year SAS, Barefoot Wine and, most importantly, beach lovers around the UK will help make this our most successful year so far. Come and join us at your favourite beaches!”
