Great British Spring Clean events in Cornwall

Volunteers beach cleaning on The Lizard

From the 2-4 March, Keep Britain Tidy are launching the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ campaign, why not take part with a beach clean at one of the beaches in Cornwall?

A huge amount of litter gets washed up on the beaches across the South West every day. It's a true team effort keeping them clean and as a conservation charity the National Trust rely on local rangers, volunteers, visitors and local community groups to help clear away  the litter washed up on the coast.

The national campaign run by Keep Britain Tidy is an opportunity to enthuse and inspire local communities to take part in beach cleans as well as raise awareness to what happens to litter after it’s collected. 

Beach cleaning not only helps to improve the coastal habitat for plants and animals but also to ensure beaches that the Trust cares for are clean and ready for the thousands of people that visit them. Working in partnership has allowed the Trust to do this much more effectively. 

" Rangers and volunteers spend hundreds of hours each year collecting rubbish from our beaches and countryside, including plastics, clothing, food packaging and more. Not only is litter an eyesore, it is deadly for wildlife, impacts tourism, and poses a threat to public health. We work closely with Keep Britain Tidy throughout the year to help with the ongoing care of these amazing places. "
