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!
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
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!
