Strandliners stand will include microplastic & plastic activities & exhibits. Discover how to add value to litter picks and beach cleans which can lead to local and national action. Discussions at 10:30 and 2:30 at the Strandliners' stall.
Strandliners’ volunteer activities range along the coast from the River Cuckmere in the west to Dungeness in the east; from Pett Level and Camber Sands on Rye Bay, up the River Rother to Brede and beyond.
We survey for plastic pollution through identification and record the data for organisations including the Marine Conservation Society, Surfers Against Sewage and Break Free From Plastic.
If we want to stop plastic pollution, we need to know what it is and where it comes from. By creating a data-rich picture of environmental pollution, we can begin to put the steps in place to stop it. Beach cleans are great for awareness, though they are only a stop-gap. To scale up the local effort, Strandliners CIC has launched a Community Action Team programme, with support from the United Nations Climate & Oceans, to train volunteers as citizen scientists and team-lead volunteers in their local communities to join the fight.
