It is intended that the rubbish be recycled as much as possible and we are working with
artists to create artful pieces from the material we collect. Collaborations like this are in early
development, but there is so much we can do... Right now we just need to clear as much of
this shocking rubbish as possible, as safely as possible, tackling the build-up that has taken
place over more than fifty years, and preventing further build-up into the future.
BHASSEXPLORE will spend the next three years clearing plastics, synthetics, foams and polystyrenes, along with any other human-made trash and debris that accumulates on the ruggedly beautiful and environmentally sensitive coastline that stretches from the estuary at Cuckmere all the way around to Holywell at Eastbourne.
This iconic length of chalk and flint, rocky coastal terrain is the habitat to myriad fauna and flora and part of a marine ecosystem that is both fascinating and unique to this little corner of the British Isles, and is in a constant state of change and flux as tides come and go twice daily and weather systems, ranging from fierce to benign, perpetually roll along its length, approximately six miles long..... but what a six miles they are......
