Every September thousands of people take to the beach all over the UK to take part in the Great British Beach Clean. This year’s Great British Beach Clean will take place between Friday 17th – Sunday 26th September 2021.
We’ve put together a handy kit bag guide for those taking part:
First Aid Kit
Similar to the one you may have in the back of your car. Let people know you have one – but they can administer themselves as you don’t need to be a trained first aider.
To collect sharp objects that will likely cut through a bin liner like glass and metal.
A big roll of bin liners
The heavy-duty ones from a DIY store are ideal. If you are recycling rigid plastics, one colour for recycling and one for everything else works well.
To help protect your hands if not using a litter picker.
The organiser or beach owner may have some you can borrow.
Clipboards and pens
To record what you find.
You can pick up a small set of scales (the ones with a hook make it easy to hang the rubbish bags from) quite cheaply online. Search for a spring hanging balance (sometimes called a newton meter) or a luggage / travel scale.
If the weather looks good.
A reusable water bottle
Keep yourself hydrated.
Wear....appropriate clothing for the great British weather.
