We've done it! 10 awesome beach cleans!
On the 9th of June we met quite a crowd at Murlough beach who wanted to pick some litter!
It was an unusually clean bech and we got 32 kg, now bringing our total to 340kg of litter overall!
It was clean coasts week!
Thanks to anyone who came!
On Friday the 1st of June St Joseph's primary school eco committee came to Tyrella beach for a successful beach clean!
We collected 61 kg of litter!
Thank you ST Joseph's!
On the 12th of May we went to Ardglass beach... where it was litter galore!
We had a small crowd with us and collected a whopping 95 kg and a 5 gear, working bike!
Thanks to anyone who came and to Q radio for telling listeners about the beach clean!
On the 21st of April we took a trip to Murlough beach with quite a crowd to support us! We collected 62kg of litter and had great fun at the same time!
On the 31st of March we took a trip to Cushandall beach and collected 15kg of rubbish! We hadn't planned this Project but were on a day out over Easter on the North Coast of Northern Ireland and stopped at the beach on the way home. We couldn't believe the amount of litter there. So we took a quick 20 minute out of our trip to clean up!
On the 24th of March we took another trip to Tyrella beach with a small group joining us! We collected around 40kg of rubbish and had a great time!
A very special thank you to Mrs Johnston's P3 children of Gilnahirk Primary School for checking my website weekly!!! We hope you can join us for some beach cleaning very soon!
On Saturday the 10th of March we took our second trip to Tyrella Beach and to our delight we had 14 people join us. These people were from the Wildfoot group!
It was lashing rain and we all got soaked to our skins but collected a shocking 90 kg of litter!
It was a great day and thanks to everyone who joined us!
On Sunday the 25th of February we attended a lecture with Doug Allan ( Wildlife photographer ) about his adventures in the Poles! It was very satisfying and his pictures and videos were amazing! ( Except the ones of the polar bears eating seals!) He said a lot on pollution and what could happen if we continue to pollute our Earth. After we joined the long line of people waiting to purchase his book Freeze Frame and get it signed! My mum had emailed him a bit and told him about Protect Our Pristine Seas! He gave me a free copy of his book and signed it! I gave him one of our t-shirts and he said he'd put it on after and send me a picture! I feel very lucky to have met him and am very pleased that he supports my website and it's aims!
We decided to see how much plastic the average family produced in a week by collecting it in a large tub! Starting on Monday the 19th of February and finishing on Sunday the 25th of February we didn't put our plastic in the bin! On Sunday we emptied it out on our kitchen table to examine and we had collected quite a lot!
