Great British Spring Clean Day 15

Great British Spring Clean Day 15

Days 15 and 16 together! I didn’t finish work last night til 10pm do no chance of any # litter picking but had planned 2 for today so still on track. Today I headed over to Perranporth on the North coast to join my friend Kelly who runs Walk Kernow Nordic Walking for the Surfers Against Sewage Big Beach Clean. They have 600 cleans this week taking place all around the country with their plasticfreecommunities

I was pleased to see so many people turn out in the glorious sunshine and Perranporth Beach was looking at its glorious best. I was pleased to catch up with the lovely @HugoTagholm who heads up the team at SAS based at St Agnes just along the coast. Most of the plastic on the North coast comes in the form of Nurdles or Microplastics, tiny pieces of #plastic deposited on the high tide line.
Picking them up is quite time consuming and backbreaking, the best way is to sit down and sieve the sand.
We managed to collect a small carrier bag and thoroughly enjoyed being out on the beach today
