A team from the BSO (based in Rugby and Preston Brook) recently attended the Marine Conservation Society Beach Clean Up Event at Formby Beach on Merseyside. The MCS is the UK’s leading marine charity who are working to ensure our seas and coastline are healthy, clean and pollution free. This is the second consecutive year that CEMEX have participated in this event and involved collecting and recording rubbish found on the beach.
The team collected over 20kg of litter and along with volunteers from other organisations, a total of 357kg of rubbish was collected during the day. This included over 1,700 separate items of plastic – the most common type of litter pollution on our beaches today.
This was an extremely enjoyable and worthwhile Lend-A-Hand day – helped by amazing weather!
