Arran is joining the Great British Beach Clean

20 to 23 September

On the weekend of Friday 20th September to Monday 23rd September people and organisations will engage in beach cleans across the island. Some of these will be organised by local organisations who are regularly involved in beach cleans. Some will be organised by TAP.

We will gather important information about how much plastic is in our seas

This island-wide event comes with a difference. Each clean will collect important 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.

There will be beach cleans at:

We will add more details as we get them. In the meantime, you can contact us at: info@thinkaboutplastic-arran.co.uk
