Spring Beach Clean

Today we started phase 1 of our spring beach clean. In addition to bringing snow, the 'Beast from the East' brought a tide of plastic into East Haven.  Today we concentrated on lifting the very heavy items such as damaged creels, rope and tyres. On Tuesday we will lift the small items of plastic such as bottles, food cartons and plastic bags. We will also survey everything and upload the data to the Marine Conservation Society. Help is at hand though in the form of lots of school children who want to see at first hand the damaging impact of marine plastic on coastal communities such as East Haven. We will report more about Tuesday's event next week.
