With the beach at the center of our community here in Porthtowan, we are really proud of achieving our plastic free status. However, it is hard to ignore the ever increasing presence of plastic pollution in our environment. Whether I’m walking back up the beach from a surf, swimming or rock pooling with my two young boys, I’ll never leave the beach without taking a handful of plastic with me.
This is the reality of our coastlines and you do not have to look hard to find pollution impacting our marine environment. I love my home beach, I love our coastline and I love watching my boys enjoying the ocean as much as I do. That is why I support the SAS in anyway I can.
SAS’s work is essential to raising awareness of these issues and in protecting our marine environment for everyone. I have always enjoyed being involved in the SAS beach cleans and now as an SAS Rep I get to lead the beach cleans myself, engage with people and see the positive impact that individuals can have to address the issues of pollution. Please feel free to contact me and come and get involved!
