#STOPtheplastictide

We need to stop plastic killing life in the oceans. We don’t want to find your rubbish in our streams and on our coasts. The tide of plastic on our beaches has risen to a whopping 70#% of all litter found*. You can help! Please avoid trash items, such as plastic cups and lids, straws, plates and cutlery. And if you can’t, please replace them with reusable or fully compostable alternatives. Your coffee tastes better when we know its container won’t end up floating around the ocean and littering our coasts. We’d rather have clean streams, coasts and seas than a straw in our cola! *Great British Beach Clean report 2017
