Activities and learning

If you're keen to take action for your beach, here's some suggestions and support:

Carry out a litter pick

Physical distancing rules mean that big clean up events are not possible for the time being. But that's not to say that you and your household cannot take action yourselves! Whether you're a beach local or a visitor, you can play a small part to help keep the sand and sea clean for everyone to enjoy.

Head over to Clean Up Scotland for guidance and to get started.


Carry out a litter count

Can you help us understand litter? Whether as part of a litter pick or as a standalone activity during a day out, every litter count helps us build both a local and a national picture of what is being littered and where it's coming from. This is vital for monitoring and for local campaigning.

Check out our citizen litter count pack.
