Project Description

Come and join the world's BIGGEST clean up and be part of something amazing!

The biggest civic action against waste is back again and this year we need you more than ever. 17 million people across 158 countries came out in force last World Clean Up Day - highlighting problems of mismanaged waste and plastic pollution, whilst creating immediate change.

Come and join us for a beach clean on one of Cornwall's beautiful beaches and help to make a difference for our local environment and wildlife. This is not a dressing down, nor is it finger-pointing or prophesying a doomsday. It is about positive collaboration, the spirit of unity and most importantly, getting something done for the planet and the realization that we need planet Earth with its resources more than it needs us.

We require your help to clean up this beach, maintaining the habitat for all of the local marine and terrestrial wildlife and ensuring a positive outcome for the local environment. We hope you can join us, and look forward to hearing from you.

Everyone is welcome- all shapes and sizes and ages - just make sure you wear suitable clothing and footwear for Cornish weather!! Feel free to bring along boats, kayaks, dinghies, paddleboards or just yourself and your feet.

Time is TBC in accordance with the weather and tides - please keep checking Facebook event or email for details
