Join the fight to keep our beaches safe and clean!
Clean water campaigners from Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) believe that the UK Government urgently needs a National Marine Litter Strategy to tackle the worsening crisis of litter in our oceans and across our beaches.

SAS believe that marine litter is coming from a wide variety of sources, including; beach users, sanitary related debris, industry, and fishing. SAS and other environmental NGOs have found that almost 70% of this litter is plastic. Plastics have a devastating impact on the marine environment over a long period, as well as economic impacts on local communities and the fishing industry. There are currently 1,601 signatories listed so if all of you sign up we can really increase the pressure. You don't have to be a member of SAS to sign this, all you need to be is someone who cares about our wonderful marine environment. Click here to sign and keep our coastline beautiful and fit for surfing!

It will only take a minute of your time, and that minute will make a real difference.

The deadline for the petition is March 1st 2010.
