Brighton beach clean – c-change campaign, 29 April 2016
Sign up to join the University of Brighton c-change campaign at the Brighton beachwatch beach clean on Friday 29 April – if you can spare anything between 1-3 hours out of your morning for a very good cause!
The event is being organised as part of the Marine Conservation Society’s (MCS) Beachwatch and is part of the MCS campaign for Clean Seas and Beaches. Since 1994, Beachwatch has involved local communities and volunteers in a practical project to clean and survey beaches all around the UK.
The survey data collected is used by MCS to highlight the dangers of marine litter on our beaches and to tackle the problems at source. Plastic bottles collected at the beach clean will also be recycled into Riz boardshorts made from 100% recycled plastic!
The Brighton Beach Clean is being held on Friday 29 April from 08.30 and will take approximately 3 hours (or less, if you can’t stay for all of it). This is a great opportunity for groups of staff and students to come together as part of the c-change campaign, and take part in a fun activity to contribute to the local community and help keep our seas clean!
