While exploring this week, I found a beach on Rame Head near Plymouth which is absolutely covered in ocean rubbish. Over two days and 3-4 hours I was able to pick up 60KG of waste and bring it back to a bin by RIB.
Day two made me realise that there’s way more than I can do on my own. I now need some extra help (volunteers) to help me run a small private beach clean up.
How much rubbish is on the beach
Over two days I was able to collect around 60KG off one of the two beaches in the cove but there’s still so much more there.
The beach is only accessible by boat/kayak in good conditions. We have a 42ft sailboat that we’re planning on anchoring off and using our RIB to ferry rubbish back to the boat and hoist onto the foredeck.
Date: Currently the weather is looking good this Sunday 6th December;
Time: Departing around 12:30pm and back around 5:30pm;
Location: Plymouth Yacht Haven Mt. Batten about 5 mins from the ferry;

We will provide:
We have lifejackets, tea, coffee and snacks etc for anyone who can join.
You should bring:
Required equipment would be wellies, gloves and warm clothes. We’ve got two large rubble bags but could do with 2-4 more.
