Day 26 of my #GBSpringClean on the main beach Charlestown Village and was meant to be a quick clean before work. I found quite a bit of debris in 5 minutes on the beach and in the seaweed, plenty of broken bits of plastic bottles, sweet wrappers, a couple of shotgun cartridges and bits of plastic fishing net plus 2 balloon ends with ribbon and a segment from a crab bucket.
Met up with the children from Naturally Learning and chatted to them about my finds then @HeadstartKernow with Three Bays Wildlife Group who asked me to stop so they had some plastic to pick up! I showed them my finds too and spent some time talking about the plastic problem.
Great to get a chance to talk to these youngsters who will in 30 years time be facing the prospect of a sea with more plastic than fish in it unless we act now☹️😢💥#LitterHeroes #Trashtag Keep Britain Tidy Wayne Dixon 2 Minute Beach Clean #LitterlessCornwall BBC Radio 2
