Join the beach clean up in Menton

Join the beach clean up in Menton

By Cassandra Tanti - October 7, 2019

After a long, hot and busy summer, it is time to clean up our coastline, so The Animal Fund (TAF), in partnership with the Ville de Menton and Sciences Po, is organising a beach clean up in Menton this Sunday.

Each summer, millions of people – both locals and tourists – flock to the coast to cool off and have some fun. Thousands more take to the water on their boats. This puts enormous pressure on our beaches and the marine ecosystems.

This Sunday 13th October, TAF will host an ‘After summer beach clean up’ at the Plage Rondelli, Garavan, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.

People are invited to help clean up the beach but also take part in some fun games. Pastries and refreshments will be offered to all particpants, while garbage bags and gloves will be provided.

“Plastic waste is polluting our seas, killing millions of marine animals and, as it breaks down into microplastic,  ends up in our food train,” says TAF. “The more hands this Sunday, the more rubbish we can remove from the beach and the ocean!”

To register, send an email to info@theanimalfund.net
