Our Plastic Allies

Working together, we can make a difference

We collaborate with the local council and authorities, schools, some environmental organisations, and local businesses to all support our mission - to reduce single use plastic and continue our work to make Eastbourne Plastic Free.  


Marine Conservation Society, Beachwatch is the body that is volunteering to cleaning up beach debris through volunteers.

BhassExplore is the body that is volunteering to cleaning up the build up of plastic, synthetic trash and garbage between Eastbourne and Cuckmere Haven.


Surfers against Sewage


Surfers Against Sewage is a leading voice in the campaign to eliminate plastic pollution, mobilising and empowering a nationwide network of ocean activists to take action from the beach front to the front benches of Parliament. We work in collaboration with partners to connect grassroot community action and businesses with policy makers to drive progressive government legislation and policy focused on reduction, reuse and refill interventions.

The Marine Conservancy Society


The Marine Conservation Society is the UK’s leading charity for the protection of our seas, shores and wildlife. We work to ensure our seas are healthy, pollution free and protected.

Our seas are under immense pressure: too many fish are being taken out, too much rubbish is being thrown in and too little is being done to protect our precious wildlife. Our vision is for seas full of life where nature flourishes and people thrive.




BHASSEXPLORE is a cooperative, with the sole purpose of removing as much plastic and man made debris and junk from, what should be, the pristine and absolutely amazing, iconic and stunning coastal habitat that is the Beachy Head and Seven Sisters chalk cliffs landscape.

From Cuckmere Haven through to Holywell, adjacent to the town of Eastbourne in East Sussex, this virtually wild and untamed stretch (about 5.5 miles) of coast is a jewel of a place and an important habitat with an incredible history and story to tell...​

I love our beaches but the rubbish damages our environment, I have decided to act. Lets get together for regular beach clean/walk and when warm a swim!

An active Facebook group with regular beach cleans. 




Refill is an award-winning campaign to help people live with less plastic. We connect people to places they can eat, drink and shop without the pointless packaging. Anyone can download the free Refill app to tap into a global network of places to reduce, reuse and refill.   ​

Our vision is a world where everyone can choose to reuse wherever they shop, eat and drink.
