BeachCare on the BBC

Paul Rose joins us at Sunderland Point

Broadcaster Paul Rose talks plastic pollution with Susannah Bleakley and joins in our beach clean at Sunderland Point.  This clip is from the BBC Inside Out programme broadcast in September: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b039vhk1

Paul chats with champion BeachCare volunteer Paula Harrison.  Susannah tells how 60% of what pick up on a beach clean is plastics. Micro-plastics now make up part of beach sand worldwide.  So the legacy for our children and "for my daughter, is that we are giving her a plastic beach, and that's not right." 

Let's reduce plastic packaging and be more careful how we dispose of plastics.  

Thanks to Paul Rose and Tony Parker of the BBC for really friendly support.  Thanks to Sunderland Point Community Association and all the BeachCare volunteers for being marvellous.
