Get rid of baths
Do not take baths, take showers. You will save about half the amount of water that you would if you were taking a bath.

Hayling Island Beach Microplastics Survey 2019

Date: Tuesday 24th September 2019

Time:  9:30am – 12:30pm

Location: Hayling Island Ferry, Ferry Road, Portsmouth


Company of Makers have teamed up with Just One Ocean to conduct a microplastic survey on Hayling Island beach. So if you’re interested in learning more about microplastics in our marine environment then read on…..

The Big Microplastic survey is a collaborative citizen science project being undertaken by UK charity, Just One Ocean and the University of Portsmouth. The project began in July 2018 and numerous individuals and organisations from around the world have joined the programme.

This is not a project that it is time dependent. It is ongoing, with data gathered next year, or even in ten years, contributing to our scientific knowledge. So it doesn’t matter if you can’t do a survey because of the snow; it can wait until the snow clears.

This project is all about collecting data that we can use. The more we get the better, so please feel free to do as many surveys as you want, whenever you want.

The Idea

The idea for the project was conceived by David Jones, CEO and Founder of Just One Ocean. David is a former Royal Engineer, conservationist and speaker; and having worked with The Plastic Oceans Foundation for nine years, has a wealth of knowledge on marine plastic issues and solutions.
