Battle of the Beach Cleans
THE RESULTS ARE IN!
In aid of Great British Beach Clean Week 2021, we wanted to organise a clean up operation with a twist at Brighton Beach.
To raise awareness about marine plastic pollution, Tiny Box Company, the Sussex-based ethical packaging company, declared war on waste, backed by our friends at the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, Marine Conservation Society, and Surfers Against Sewage, Brighton.
“A brilliant turn out for a beach clean’, I was told by so many attendees at the event. I couldn’t have been more delighted to see the crowd that came to help clean up the stretch of Brighton Beach between West Pier and Palace Pier” says Emily Feehan of Tiny Box Company, event organiser. “We decided to launch this competition to raise awareness around the huge problem of litter and plastic in our seas and beaches, which is already affecting wildlife and ourselves.”
And the results are clear as day!
We've tallied, weighed, and submitted our report...
Team ‘Big Fish’ and Team ‘Little Fish’ competed for the title of ‘Best Litter Pickers’ as a collective group representing ethical cardboard gift packaging company, Tiny Box Company.
Both teams brought in a huge amount of litter, team Little Fish were the winners of the day bringing in 28lb of waste, however, team Big Fish wasn’t far behind with 26lb, giving us a grand total of 55lb (26kg) of litter collected in the 2 hours of beach cleaning.
Some shocking data from the report:
A highlight reel of the day, many thanks to all who took part, you ROCK!
