LEAVE THE BEACH LOOKING BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT

100 million people are going to be flocking to the worlds coastlines this summer. If we all pick up 5 pieces of litter that means 500 million pieces going where they belong, and not into the sea.

Rubbish you can commonly find on beaches include:
Plastic cutlery
Food wrappers
Plastic bags
Plastic bottles

PREPARE YOUR PICNIC

Whilst it’s hard to stop the sand getting into your sandwiches, there are ways to prep your picnic to be more ocean friendly.

Before you head to the beach, prepare and unpack your picnic foods home at home to ensure packaging is recycled and doesn’t end up in the sea.

Say no to single use plastics by bringing your own reusable alternatives and remember to take any rubbish home with you to dispose of in the correct way.

TRY TO EAT LOCAL, SUSTAINABLY SOURCED SEAFOOD

We know that, for most people, a trip to the coast isn’t complete without a portion of chips. This summer, why don’t you try something new on the menu? There’s an amazing variety of local, sustainable seafood that lands on the doorstep of coastal towns. The Ocean Conservation Trust have created a guide to showcase tasty, yet sustainable alternatives to the ‘Big Five’ to make sure that popular fish stocks are given time to recover.
