Turning the tide on marine plastic pollution for World Oceans Day in Looe on the 8th June.

According to the Marine Conservation Society, Beach Litter is at the highest levels since records began, plastic litter on beaches has increased 140% since 1994.
East Looe Beach from 10am til 4pm.
There will be a thought provoking and highly visual display of common and unusual marine litter collected from our local beaches, examples of how you can easily replace single use plastics, kids beach art and an opportunity to make a plastic pledge. Also find out the difference between a “Nurdle” and a “Sea Bead” and why millions of them are threatening the lives of our marine wildlife.
