    Marine Conservation Society Beachwatch

    Helpful guidelines on organising a beach clean from the MCS. Anyone can join Beachwatch and organise a beach clean, but the tips are also useful if you wanted to organise an independent event globally, too. There is also a suggested checklist and a guide for what to do on the day.

     

    If you'd like to become a beach clean organiser for an existing organisation, check out this guide to become a Marine Conservation Society Beachwatch Organiser or this guide to organise for Surfers Against Sewage.

    Surfers Against Sewage

    Surfers Against Sewage want to inspire volunteer Community Leaders to take action in their local communities. Their website provides easy-to-use resources and guidelines to creating a Plastic Free Community and becoming a Community Leader. Their aim is to establish 125 Plastic Free Communities in the UK by 2020, but their tips and guidelines could be applied anywhere in the world.

    Repair Cafe

    Part of the solution to reducing ocean plastic is to reduce the disposable attitude we have towards our items. Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). Cafes have tools, materials and expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields.

    Precious Plastic

    Precious Plastic is a project trying to boost plastic recycling worldwide. They do this by providing tools and knowledge to people around the world, for free! Includes detailed information in building recycling machines, product ideas, an area where you can browse recycled products and a map to find your nearest workspace.
