Anyone who has watched David Attenborough's Blue Planet will be painfully aware of the damage that plastic waste is doing to our oceans.

The question is, when the problems is so huge, what can any of us, as individuals, do about it?   

Well the short answer is plenty.  And we don't just do it as individuals, we do it together, whether that's by changing the way we consume things, taking part in organised beach sweeps or getting smarter at reusing and recycling.    

We are proud to be working with Whitby Beach Sweep, Plastic Free Filey and Surfers Against Sewage in Scarborough helping local people to come together in the fight against single-use plastics and throwaway culture. 

If you want to organise a community activity contact [email protected] and we will see what we can do to support you.
