Beachwatch is the Marine Conservation Society’s national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme. Join volunteers from the Looe MCG for a litter pick, picnic and maybe a swim! Enjoy a walk on the beach with our friendly group of volunteers. Bring a picnic – a great chance to network with like-minded people and enjoy the beautiful setting.
Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. It’s also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industries. We all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter.
No Booking Necessary. Bring a picnic, drink and swimming costume! Gloves and litter pickers provided. Unsuitable for those with restricted mobility.
Sign the Marine Conservation Societies petition for clearer labelling by retailers
Wet wipes currently labelled as flushable don’t meet the water industry standard. Demand retailers include a clear ‘DON’T FLUSH’ message on their packaging and remind us only paper, pee and poo belong down the loo.
Flushed wet wipes are a nightmare. They make your water bills more expensive, pollute beaches and can harm marine life. Support our campaign by signing the petition below and help us tackle this increasingly serious issue.
