SaveMoneyCutCarbon has cleaned up Felixstowe beach in support of the UN’s “Beat Plastic Pollution” campaign.
Our eight-strong team spent a day picking up plastic litter and other polluting materials along the beach, together covering over 22 miles – logged by a trusted step-counting app.
They cleaned up an astonishing range of waste plastic, from nappies and plastic cutlery to straws, bottles, cups and pens.
It our first beach clean-up in support of the UN’s strategy around the annual World Environment Day, which this year is marked on June 5th and focuses on raising support to end the very damaging single-use plastic pollution. Up to 13 million tonnes of plastic leak into the oceans every year.
SaveMoneyCutCarbon chief operating officer Holden Cook was part of the clean-up team and said: “As a sustainable green company, we are fully behind this year’s World Environment Day theme on ridding the world of plastic pollution. One of the best things about working at SaveMoneyCutCarbon is that we can make an environmental difference with our products and services.
“We can all do our bit by reusing and recycling– it’s the way we will beat plastic pollution once and for all. We are urging industries, communities and individuals to stop using single-use plastic polluting our oceans, damaging marine life and threatening human health.”
SaveMoneyCutCarbon is sponsoring the Green/Environment Award at this year’s Bury Free Press Business Awards.
We’re offering a range of discounts on products that reduce waste at SaveMoneyCutCarbon up to World Environment Day on June 5th.
