Great British Beach Clean


Our 29th Great British Beach Clean (GBBC) is just a few months away! Wherever you live in the UK, you can help make our seas cleaner by joining or organising a beach clean between Friday 16th and Sunday 25th September 2022.

The Great British Beach Clean, sponsored by Ireland’s number one soup brand, Cully & Sully, is more than just a clean up - our volunteers collect valuable data as well as litter. The information they send us about exactly what gets picked up on the beach is analysed by our experts. The data is used to campaign for changes that will lead to cleaner beaches and a healthier planet. We’ve campaigned for carrier bag charges, single-use plastic bans and deposit return schemes – all thanks to the evidence collected by you and our volunteers.
