M&S Big Beach Clean-Up

6,000 volunteers of all ages took part in the Big Beach Clean-up in May 2012. The volunteers collected 11,500kg of litter, helping to protect marine wildlife and keep our beaches clean. Over 3,200 bin bags were filled with rubbish, which included 12,800 wrappers and 2,850 tin cans. Lucky litter pickers even found a set of false teeth and half a sofa in Edinburgh, a carpet in Clacton and a pair of underpants on Shoreham beach! The Big Beach Clean-up shows how everyone can help to make a difference by doing something very simple © M&S Company Archive
