Now autumn is well and truly here, we brace ourselves against the inevitable mass accumulation of plastic pollution upon our beaches. The combined effects of the sheer volume of plastic entering our oceans each day, the ever strengthening North Atlantic hurricane season and the end of seasonal beach clean operations lead to a ‘Perfect Storm’ of plastic pollution on our beaches.
On the day
Join us at 2pm at the branded gazebos on Watergate Bay, where both the team from SAS and Reef will be there to host a beach clean like no other. We’ll be hosting a whole series of challenges, competitions and activities throughout the day with a plethora of prizes, so grab your gloves, litter pickers and bags and get stuck in! All equipment will be provided.

After more than a year of isolation, social distancing and reduced physical activity, the Million Mile Clean reconnects communities with the environment, whilst promoting the benefits of volunteering for both mental health and physical wellbeing.
