In late 2017 I went for a walk along Formby beach, bag in hand in case I spotted any litter. Within five minutes of stepping on the sand dunes my bag was full, and I was fuming.
As a result of this, and Blue Planet 2, I became a member of SAS and decided to run my own beach cleans. Forming a little local group called The Dirty Beach Club, I comb the dunes of Formby for any single-use plastics that can be removed and recycled.
With SAS I’m hoping to become more active in this in the future; ideally finding ways to prevent this plastic use in the first place.
