CAOLAS are supporting as many of the local community beach clean ups as possible and will promote any others that we are made aware of - so please let us know details of any your area is planning this Spring and we will help promote it.
And well as being an opportunity to smarten up your area, it will also help prevent all manner of 'rubbish' - much of it plastic that is not biodegradable - from remaining in the waters around our homes and polluting a vital habitat and Marine Protected Area (MPA).
It is also a great opportunity to meet with and talk to some of your 'village neighbours'!
This year we are pleased to say that the Highland Council are supporting our efforts by supplying refuse bags and gloves for us to use and are also arranging to collect whatever rubbish we collect.
As far as we know, there are beach clean ups on the following dates in 2018:
Please send us your photos from your beach clean up and any notes on the type of rubbish you collect as we can use this data to map any problem areas around the peninsulas.
Hope to meet you at one of the beach clean ups this Spring.
