The Marine Conservation Society is organising another beach clean up.  This year it takes place from 18 to 21 September, and a list of events is shown here.

Last year, 273,747 items of litter were collected.  As this is 2.5 pieces every metre, it may seem a surprise that we win any good beach awards.

The full results for 2014 are here, and this info graphic shows what was collected … .

Will the new plastic bag tax for England (starting October 5th) make any difference, the MSC wonders – as do we.
