Plast Off! 2019

Plast Off 2018 - Beach clean

Kick-start your New Year by doing something positive for local wildlife! Join us for a very special beach clean on 19 January …

2018 will be remembered as the year when the issue of plastic pollution in our oceans really caught the public’s attention. It’s a truly global problem which can often seem insurmountable, but getting out there and helping to keep your local beach clean can make a huge difference to the wildlife that calls it home.

Last year we teamed up with RSPCA Cymru, Keep Wales Tidy and Surfers Against Sewage to run what turned out to be one of our most popular public events of the year – a large-scale clean-up of the beaches around Cable Bay on the west coast of Anglesey. 150 people braved the wintery weather to help remove over half a tonne of rubbish from three different beaches in just 5 hours – and this January we want to do it all over again, but even bigger!

‘Plast Off! 2019’ will be taking place between 10:00 and 16:00 on Saturday 19 January at Cable Bay. We will again be joined by RSPCA Cymru’s Rope Rescue team who will be using their expertise to remove plastic from some of the more inaccessible areas, and we will have staff on hand in the car park to brief and equip all members of the public who want to join in. All you need to bring is a ‘can-do’ attitude and plenty of warm waterproof clothing. What better way to shake off the excesses of Christmas than by doing your bit for the environment – we hope to see you there!
