Arran joined in the Great British Beach Clean

14 to 17 September

On the weekend of Friday 14th September to Monday 17th September people and organisations across Arran engaged in beach cleans across the island. Some of these were organised by local organisations who are regularly involved in beach cleans. Some were organised by TAP.

We all gathered important information about how much plastic is in our seas

This island-wide event came with a difference. Each clean importantly collected information (using a simple tick sheet for 100 yards of beach) about the type and amount of litter which was collected and this will provide an important base-line of data to monitor and quantify the extent and nature of the problem of litter (and particularly plastic) on Arran. Once collated by TAP, it will be available to anyone on Arran. It will also contribute to the data which the Marine Conservation Society provides for the Sottish and UK Governments and which is shared internationally.
