New Year's Clean up

That's Rubbish is back in action at the beach, and boy did it need a good clean. The winter currents have done their worst and dragged in heaps of plastic which littered the entire beach. 

Within two hours we had collected 12 recycling bags full and 9 with other waste. 

Despite not being able to get rid of all the tiny plastic pieces strewn over the rocks and sand, the bay looked miles better once we were done with it. Every item we stopped from getting pulled back out to sea is one less hazard to our Mediterranean sea life! 

Thanks to everyone who came along, both old and new volunteers - it was great fun spending the afternoon with you all :)
