Both local and visitor volunteers showed up for the SAS Spring Beach Clean, at our beach, Great Western Beach in Newquay on Saturday 8th April. About 15 people were working their way with hands, pickers and rubbish bags along the high-tide line, over the dry sand beach and the surrounding coves to collect all ocean debris and human rubbish. The result of this effort was several bags containing glass and plastic bottles, drinks cans, paper, silver foil and various plastic containers . Hardest to see and largely escaping collection were the hundreds of micro-particles of plastic that scatter the tideline sand, often enmeshed in the seaweed clumps.
All involved were pleased with the results of this sunny day on the beach and their active support of a national campaign by Surfers Against Sewage to clean up our coastline, especially the beaches where we and our children love to play!
First Wave Adventures is proud to support Surfers Against Sewage and share the their message with the school groups that stay with us.
