  • Want to do something about marine litter? The problem starts upstream, so this year The Big Spring Beach Clean is taking a ‘summit to sea’ approach. Volunteers around the country are asked to take part, joining an existing beach clean or setting up their own.

    The Big Spring Beach Clean is running from 6-14th April. It is organised by Surfers Against Sewage, and this year The Outdoor Swimming Society is proud to be one of their community partners.

    WHAT TO DO

    To join the Big Spring Beach Clean please see the SAS site for existing clean ups. You can find out when and where your nearest clean is taking place and just turn up at the designated time and place to join others from your community or you might want to think about leading your own clean, which is straightforward and the SAS can assist you with this for every step of the way. If you’d like to join The SAS for The Big Spring Beach Clean please email Jack on beachcleans@sas.org.uk

    THE GOOD WORK SO FAR

    Since 2010 over 74,500 of volunteers ave joined Surfers Against Sewage at over 1,775 events across the UK. These beach cleans have so far removed 152,741kg of marine litter from the UK’s coastline, the majority of which is plastics.

    • The OSS instagram Editor Laura Sanderson (@welshwildswimmer) is also a Surfers Against Sewage rep and arranges a Beach Clean in her area (North Wales).
