With the increasing global concerns over plastic pollution in the sea and on beaches, the holiday home sector is also playing its part in the clean-up. Staff and local residents turned out in force to support a beach clean in Selsey, organised by holiday park Bunn Leisure, as part of its ongoing support for the global fight against plastic pollution in our oceans.
The event took place on July 14, with over 50 volunteers getting involved, and it was supported by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, which has been running its Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project for the last 12 years.
The project forms part of the Barefoot brand’s Leave Only Footprints environment initiative, which works in partnership with Surfers Against Sewage to protect the UK’s oceans, beaches and wildlife.
Managing director John Bunn said: “Our staff and holiday home owners were keen to get involved with the global fight against plastic pollution in our oceans and hosting a beach clean seemed like a fun way to do it. We’re incredibly proud of our mile-long stretch of beach and we were delighted to see so many members of staff, owners and locals turn up to help us.”
