Sign up to BSAC’s challenge and help make a difference to the health of our environment!

Embrace the BSAC Marine Clean ethos in your everyday by pledging to collect at least five pieces of single-use plastic every day. Whether it’s while you’re at work, shopping, out and about with friends or family, or simply walking the dog, the Five-a-Day challenge is a great way to detox when it comes to the throw-away items that surround us.

You can pledge to take the Five-a-Day challenge for a week, a month or even longer. All you need to do is collect a minimum of five pieces of single-use plastic or litter every day of your challenge….and let us know how you do.

Do it, share it!
Share your Five-a-Day successes, your photos, even your Five-a-Day blog diaries with BSAC and encourage your own Facebook friends to sign up too….and let’s get as many people as possible to sign up to get their Five-a-Day! #bsacmarineclean  

And remember, every piece of litter you collect, is one less piece of rubbish potentially getting into our oceans.

The Lowdown on marine litter:

  • 80% of all litter in the marine environment comes from the land (source: Greenpeace).
  • Over 50% of litter recorded by the Marine Conservation Society’s Beachwatch is made of plastic.
  • One Leatherback turtle found in Galloway had 1 white plastic bag, 1 black plastic bin liner, 3 transparent plastic bags and 1 green plastic bag in its stomach.
  • Plastic litter can take hundreds of years to break down and may never fully degrade.
  • One in three fish caught for human consumption now contains plastic.
  • A plastic bag is used on average for 15 minutes yet could take 100-300 years to breakdown (source: Surfers Against Sewage).
