WHO ARE WE?

Plymouth Beach Clean is a volunteer group creating a community of beach clean volunteers cleaning coasts, protecting the ocean.
We were founded by Oleta Forde in February 2018.

BEACH CLEAN VOLUNTEER {NOUN}

Definition:
A dedicated individual who volunteers their free time to clean beaches.
A person who spends their time protecting the marine environment.
A person who saves our Ocean and the life it holds.

Humans have explored less than 10% of the ocean but with every new discovery and every new journey to the deep ocean, we are finding our rubbish has beaten us there.

WHY BEACH CLEAN?

BENEFITS TO SELF?

Being a Beach Clean Volunteer you are actively engaging in conservation for the environment, the ocean and our planet. You will get the opportunity to learn more about what is happening on our local coastline, increase your health and wellbeing, meet other local beach cleaners and learn about marine life at the same time.

You’ve probably seen the shocking images online and in the news of animals tangled in debris. These are heart breaking to see but they sadly are not unusual things to happen due to the large amounts of pollution in our waters.  Beach cleaning prevents rubbish re-entering the ocean on the next high tide. It’s just one the steps towards a healthier ocean.

BENEFITS TO THE OCEAN?
