Big Blue Partnership with Marine Conservation Society

Big Blue Ocean Cleanup has teamed up with the Marine Conservation Society to help provide them with data from our beach cleanups. The surveys contain information on pieces of litter which are then submitted to the MCS National database to look at the types and sources of litter found on UK beaches.

The survey methodology is robust and has allowed to influence national and European legislation, encourage best practice within industries and run public campaigns that offer effective solutions to problem items or success stories such as wet wipes, dog bags, cotton bud sticks and plastic bags.
