A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our Beach Clean - you helped make it the biggest and best yet.

Over 9,000 volunteers helped us clear rubbish from 113 beaches and 50 canals and waterways up and down the country– a total of 300km! So far we know that we collected over 30,000kgs of rubbish - a whopping 4,000 bags were filled with cans, wrappers and other litter. Some of the more unusual items found included a scooter, a plastic dinosaur and a rather forlorn Christmas tree!
As well as keeping our beaches looking beautiful and protecting our sea life, the beach clean provides Marine Conservation Society with valuable information to help with future campaigns.
