Eco beachcombers

Students from our Eco Club attended the launch of the "Trommel" and the "Basking S

hark" on Croyde Beach last week; two pieces of equipment designed to remove microplastics from the beach. The visit was just after a really high spring tide and some big waves had washed huge amounts of rubbish onto Croyde beach, so it was a great time to be testing the equipment. They also did some transect sampling along the strand line to find out how much microplastic is on our beach and spent a lot of time doing a classic litter pick.
