Bottles from…

A new campaign to record drinks bottles and cans found in our environment.
Easy for all to participate.

Next time anyone is out on the beach, along a river bank, in a park and sees a discarded drinks bottle or can, make a note and send the info to with the subject titleBottles from… (insert town, village, park, beach or river)These can then either be recycled or put straight into a bin. If there’s time, send a photo too.

Strandliners will collate all the bottles found in the environment and send the info to the Government to help support the Deposit Return Scheme being discussed in the Environment Bill later this year (as well as adding to the MCS’s wildbottlesighting database).

What information is needed?
Material – how many plastic, glass or metal?
Size – how many large, medium or small? 
Brand – how many, if any?

We are primarily focusing on the East Sussex and Kent coastlines and river catchments but the more records the better. Local data can inform of local polluting issues.
Please send all information to 


Becoming a member of Strandliners gives you an exciting opportunity to join with other volunteers doing something about the increasing level of plastic pollution in our environment that harms wildlife. Additionally, by joining you will help raise funds to develop our area of work and the events Strandliners holds, monitoring and recording plastic pollution in our communities.
