How did it go?
Thousands of kilograms of rubbish were picked up from 97 beaches in 22 countries!
In total, 105 companies took part in the event. A huge thank you to all the staff, customers, residents and friends who made the Big Holiday Beach Cleanup such a success.
Thanks also for keeping us informed of your beach cleans and sending through your photos – a selection of which have been used in the above graphic, and appear in our Facebook album and on Flickr. You can also download this graphic as an A4 poster to display.
So what next?
If you haven’t already done so, please send your beach surveys to Ocean Conservancy who will use the data to keep track of the problem globally. They will also report back with observations about the litter collected and what this means.
Consider getting your beach fully-green: get inspiration and advice from our Greening Cyprus Beaches film and manual and/or use our Turtle Protection tool. Be sure to keep us informed of your progress!
Thanks again for making this year’s Make Holidays Greener campaign the best yet. And thanks too to Visit Greece for sponsoring the campaign this year!
