Our online shop is experiencing an extremely high number of visitors at the moment - thank you for your patience! This is affecting our ability to quickly update stock levels - due to the COVID-19 guidelines we are only in the stockroom on Tuesdays and Fridays, so if your order contains an item which is now out of stock, you will be informed via email as soon as possible and we will happily sort out a refund/exchange for you.

Thank you for supporting Surfers Against Sewage!

Mini beach cleans

#MiniBeachClean
Anyone – Anywhere – Anytime

One thing we all have in common is a shared a desire to take hands-on action to protect our beaches from plastic pollution 365 days a year.

Whilst it’s not always possible to find, or even organise an ‘official’ SAS Beach Clean, if you have less than 15 people, it is ALWAYS possible to do a #MiniBeachClean.

#MiniBeachClean is simply a mindset, an engaging and positive ethos to encourage us to recognise that;

  • Every action we take, however big or small has an impact. Every piece of plastic pollution  we remove is a small victory in our battle to create Plastic Free Coastlines
  • Our actions raise awareness of the marine plastic pollution crisis which is as important as removing it.
  • Every beach is impacted by plastic pollution and deserves our protection
  • We can help re-capture recyclables like plastic bottles. Take them home and #RecycleForVictory!

How to #MiniBeachClean!

Be Safe

We believe that, as long as you are respectful and stay safe and only remove plastic pollution (please use our SAS-Safety-Guidelines) you shouldn’t have to ask permission or fill out loads of forms to remove some litter from your favourite places

Collect

The beauty of #MiniBeachClean is that it’s up to you how you do it! Whether you kit up with some heavy duty gloves, a wheelbarrow and a pack lunch to the farthest reaches of your favourite stretch of coastline or simply fill your hands with the plastics that you come across on a family walk. The key is that YOU are doing something positive and representing YOUR beach!

Capture
