The Great British Beach Clean

26 July by Miriam Heale


This year, after taking the no plastic bag challenge , purging my house of clingfilm and using ingenious washable food covers instead, I am now committing to an annual beach clean.

ALLEN & YORK HQ is about 8 miles from the Dorset coast, so we see at first hand the detritus washed up on the shore every year.  The culmination of the shear amount of plastic in the water and the ever strengthening North Atlantic hurricane season, brings a sea of plastic onto the shore.

With fellow A&Yers, we have signed up to take part in  The Great British Beach Clean 2017 on Boscombe Beach, 16 Sept 2017 11am-1pm.

The event is organised by the Marine Conservation Society, in association with Waitrose, and we're looking forward to a morning on the beach, litter picking in the sunshine (fingers crossed!) 

Come and join us!! Register for the Boscombe Beach clean

And go the extra mile, by reusing and recycling plastic bottles, stop using plastic bags and never buy clingfilm again!
