Turn the Tide - Beach Clean
News - 26 January 2018
We are a group of volunteers dedicated to reducing the plastic pollution of Portishead’s beautiful beaches through regular beach cleans and educational projects to reduce single use plastic. Our first project in 2018 will be the launch of a “2 min beach clean” board, through Springwatch, which will be located just outside Portishead’s Lido Café. This will get Portishead on the UK beach clean map and encourage beach lovers to roll up their sleeves with us to help rid the world’s beaches of marine litter, two minutes at a time!
So far we have been fortunate enough to gain support from Bristol Port, Bristol Pilots, Friends of Portishead Primary School and Portishead Town Council but we need your help to Turn the Tide in Portishead.
This page will be primarily for information about beach cleans and upcoming events, although we will be regularly posting ways in which both businesses and individuals can stand against single use plastics and prevent the local coastline becoming a wasteland.
