The Covid-19 (coronavirus) infection has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organisation.
The health and wellbeing of our volunteers and supporters is our utmost priority and as such we have taken the decision to advise that all  beach clean events should be cancelled pending further notice.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will contact organisers and volunteers by email as well as update the guidance on our website as the situation develops.



The Great British Beach Clean is the biggest beach clean and survey in the UK.

The information our volunteers have collected over the last 25 years has helped make some of the most significant impacts on beach litter ever – the plastic bag charge, microplastics banned in personal care products, better wet wipe labelling, and massive support for a tax on ‘on the go’ plastic single use items.

But it’s not job done. We need to gather more and more data to wage war on other types of beach litter, and you can help.
