Wardie Bay plastics cleanup

Tuesday, April 11, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We have previously featured a piece on the web about the dangers to the ecology of plastics in cosmetics and toothpaste, etc. The other problems to marine life are the plastics discarded into the sea along with all sorts of other rubbish.

If you feel strongly about this now is the chance to help. Associated with the Marine Conservation Society is WardieBayBeachwatch. They have a monthly exercise in Wardie Bay to clean up the plastics just round the corner from us. On Tuesday next from 3pm, they’re organising another clean, this time for a TV programme and I wondered if any of our members or web readers would like to come down to help? They start to set up and work from 3pm and then the filming will start at 5pm. Channel 4’s ‘Food Unwrapped’ alsowant to interview Catherine Gemmell of MCS about Ocean Plastics.

Please think about going down and add to the numbers!
