This February, we’re celebrating the incredible part of the country we live in, as well as supporting the people who are working hard to keep it that way.
Plastic Free Penzance is gathering the troops for a beach clean on Sunday 13th February, as part of the ‘Show the Love’ campaign. The movement, driven by the Climate Coalition, takes place every year in February and aims to highlight how people from all walks of life are helping to tackle climate change together, however big or small.
Since 2015, ‘Show the Love’ has inspired the UK to use the power of green hearts to ask politicians to help tackle the climate crisis. Whether it starts at home or with a community group, the green heart can be used as a symbol when asking your local MP to drive change towards protecting the climate. If you want to find out how you can get involved, download the Climate Coalition action pack here.
As well as supporting this initiative, the beach clean this month will as always support and form part of the Surfers Against Sewage beach clean movement, which enables volunteers from all ages and backgrounds to help protect the ocean.
If you’d like to help us spread the love, we’ll be at Long Rock Car Park on Sunday 13th February at 11am to clean up the coast from Long Rock to Eastern Green. As always, kit will be provided for free, so you can help pick up discarded rubbish and plastic that could eventually be washed into the ocean. Feel free to bring your own gloves, bags and anti-bac if you feel better doing that.
No pre-sign up is required, just simply turn up on the day, just one thing to remember … children under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult.
See you there!
