Aquamarine Power takes to the beach

The Aquamarine Power beach clean team

On Saturday our Edinburgh and Orkney teams, with their friends and families, took part in the second Marine Conservation Society Beach Clean of 2011. Much of the litter and waste in and around our seas harms precious wildlife and is hazardous to human life.  Taking part in this coastal environmental initiative is close to our hearts.  MSC Beach Clean is a national event and is one of the most influential ways to fight against marine litter. 

It was fairly brisk down at the shore in Cramond although it was an enjoyable sunny bright morning all the same! The team in Orkney were well kitted out for some serious beach cleaning as you can see from the photo below!

Across both Cramond and Orkney we had a great turn out, with some experienced beach cleaners and new comers taking part.   Having recorded everything we found - from pieces of cloth and plastic to cans, string and bottles - we headed off for well deserved tea and scones!  We hope to see you at the next Beach Clean…visit the Marine Conservation Society website to find out more.
