The Marine Conservation Society is a UK-wide community of ocean lovers all working together towards our vision of a sea full of life, where nature flourishes and people thrive. The clean seas team focuses on issues around pollution with three key areas of focus: water quality, chemicals and marine litter. Our volunteers conduct beach litter surveys throughout the year collecting key data enabling us to show the types and quantity of marine litter around the UK. Through engagement with businesses we drive proactive changes to their practises. We call on Governments to bring about legislative changes to reduce the amount of pollution we find in our ocean through stopping it at source and shifting to a more sustainable and circular economy.
