Here’s what Strandliners volunteers have done this year

Strandliners’ hardy volunteers have given 900 hours of their valuable time in the fight against plastic pollution in our region

These local heroes have collected, bagged and safely disposed of over 840 kilos of toxic waste from our shorelines and riverbanks, waste that would otherwise have ended up in the sea

More critically, these freshly-minted citizen scientists have methodically identified, sorted and logged a significant part of the trash they have collected

Picking up beach litter helps our planet. Knowing where it comes from and stopping it at source might just save it
