Bromsgrove Joined the International Schools Beach and Reef Clean Up

September 20, 2018
On Saturday morning at 6am nine students joined Mr Owens and Ms Lowry to travel down to Pattaya to take part in a beach and reef clean up with Mermaids Dive Centre.
We collected more than 30 bags of rubbish on one small beach popular with tourists. Common items were: Styrofoam plates and boxes; plastic cutlery, bottles and straws; glass bottles for beer and energy drink; and old clothes and fishing equipment.
The trip showed everyone the scale of the problem- it is estimated that the equivalent of one garbage truck full of rubbish is dumped into the sea every minute world wide- and convinced us all that we need to do more to stop creating waste in the first place.
