Urban Beach Clean

Up to 95% of the plastic in the oceans comes from towns and cities so you don't have to live near a beach to make a difference.

Get a group together and organise an Urban Beach Clean in your neighbourhood.

Why not combine your UBC with a Street Collection in aid of WDC - great for students and community groups.
