Sandwich Bay Beach Clean
Updated: Feb 20, 2019
On Sunday 27th January Cuddle Earth hosted its very first beach clean!
A massive part of our mission is to provide cleaner and safer beaches, and with the support from so many volunteers, we most definitely made a difference to Sandwich Bay.
The Sandwich Bay beach clean was also hosted with the valued support from local environmental group ‘Deal With It’.
Our first beach clean will remain as such a special moment in our project's journey, and it's all down to the people who attended and helped us.
We were greeted with over 80 volunteers who all came to support us and to help make Sandwich Bay a cleaner and safer beach - we couldn't have done it without you guys!
The outcome of our beach clean was amazing, we couldn't have asked for a better day! In just over an hour, we were able to collect over 90 kilos of litter. It wasn't just plastic waste that we were able to find - from plastic bottles to even the front of a boat, our beach clean retrieved so much.
Protecting our Planet
To help provide cleaner and safer beaches is something that drives our project, But, what is also important to us and our mission is to inspire people and especially the next generation to help look after our planet as much as they can.
We want to inspire a movement where kids grow up knowing how they can help protect our planet, even just by doing the littlest of things like recycling or even little beach cleans with their families and friends.
That’s why it was so incredible to see so many kids at our beach clean yesterday who were all so passionate and inspired to protect our beaches and environment - you certainly played a massive part on this special day!
We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who attended and supported us on this day, we appreciate your support so much. Whether you shared our event online, or you were one of the people who joined us on Sunday, we are grateful for all the support we were given.
Very soon we will be releasing our video that captured all the special moments from this amazing day! We can't wait to share it with you all 💚🌍
