Marine litter: what you can do


Pledge your commitment to Clean Seas.

Marine litter is a global issue which has a devastating impact upon the world’s oceans. The good news is that we can all play a part in changing this.

Around the world, individuals, businesses, charities and governments are taking action. They are pledging to fight for #CleanSeas as part of the UN’s campaign.

Wales is a host country to the UN Clean Seas campaign. We will address the issue of marine litter and build on our accomplishments:

  • Blue Flag beaches
  • bathing water quality
  • recycling rates

We ask your organisation/community to make a pledge and be part of the global UN campaign. Even if it is just a small change:

  • stop using plastic straws
  • change to re-usable cups
  • carry out a 5 minute beach clean
  • put your litter in the correct recycling bin

Small changes make a big difference!
