About the event

Meet: Cabin on the green

Come along and get some fresh sea air and help us with a litter survey and beach clean. If you'd like to wear your recycled sea themed xmas jumper, jacket, or hat ! that would be a gentle way for us to engage in the festive season ahead :)

We will survey 100m and count and sort the types of litter arising. We will then do a wider litter pick. Knowing the amount and litter type creates data which can be used to push for policy changes to help prevent pollution such as the ban on plastic earbuds and plastic bag charge.

It's also fun to see what natural things we can find along the strand line from different seaweeds and mermaid purses etc

This is a family-friendly event and suitable for children over 5 years. All children must be with their parent/guardian.

Please ensure you have suitable layers for the weather, protective gloves if you have them, and a drink. If you use an inhaler or epi pen please ensure you have them.

This stretch runs along Cowes beach primarily in front of Cabin on the Green.

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.

Any questions please get in touch
