Great British beach clean

Apogee has taken part in the Great British Beach Clean, partnering with the Marine Conservation Society to remove litter from Folkestone, Kent, Cleethorpes, in the Humber, and Silverknowes, Scotland.

Helmed and overseen by the Marine Conservation Society, The Great British Beach Clean is a science event where thousands of volunteers clean UK beaches over the course of a week. All litter collected is then sorted and disposed of responsibly, directly contributing to the conservation work of the International Coastal Clean-Up.

Apogee volunteers removed 19kg of litter from Cleethorpes, 30kg from Silverknowes, and 178kg from Folkestone – coming to a collective total of 227kg.

This marks the second year that Apogee has taken part in the Great British Beach Clean. In September 2021, Apogee volunteers collected over 40kg of litter from beaches in Whitstable, Kent, and Paull on the Humber – amounting to less than one fifth of what was collected in 2022.
