Almost two tonnes of debris collected from along the coast by Beachy Head and Eastbourne

The 6th Green Sock Movement ๐Ÿ’š #greensockmovement Marine Debris Boat Removal Operation Day was a great success... another 1.8 tonnes of plastic and synthetic materials where safely permanently removed from the incredible stretch of coastline beneath the cliffs of Beachy Head by 12 Green Sock Movement ๐Ÿ’š volunteers and with the fantastic help and assistance of the Maritime Voluntary Service crew members and their East Sussex 1 vessel... Approximately 11,ooo kilos of nasty harmful materials have now been collected bagged and removed from this most iconic location adjacent to the world famous Beachy Head Lighthouse and important Marine Conservation Zone by this method over the past three years since the environmental project was founded to clear this magnificent coastscape of as much fishing industry rope,ghost netting and other equipment as possible as well as all the general shipping debris and other plastic objects and junk that accumulated there over the past six decades... and in that time the extremely dedicated Green Sock volunteers have now removed a staggering 50 tonnes plus of plastic and synthetic materials from the East Sussex coastline and surrounding countryside between Eastbourne's pier and Brighton's marina... a totally shocking and staggering amount!
