Opportunity: Corporate Beach/River Clean with City to Sea

Come and help stem the tide on marine plastic pollution on a corporate volunteering day!

City to Sea is a local C.I.C., a collective of local organisations, practitioners, scientists, marine biologists & campaigners addressing the marine plastic problem at a city level, and the team behind Refill Bristol. We've got stacks of plastic littering Bristol's waterways and gorge and new research shows that collecting plastic waste near coasts is the most effective clean-up method when it comes to marine plastic pollution.

We're offering full or half days for up to 20 volunteers to join us for a river or beach clean here in Bristol. Our schedules tick all five of the NEF 'Five Ways to Wellbeing':

Give: Volunteering your time
Take Notice: Collecting data, being outdoors
Be Active: Walking, clambering, some carrying of bags full of litter
Connect: Working together, meeting our team
Keep Learning: We'll share stats on the global issues, as well as ways to live with less plastic at home and in the workplace

... so not only will your team be helping us collect important data, restore the local waterways and protect our oceans - but they'll be scientifically proven to be happier too!

What we offer:

  • Organisation of the logistical arrangements, materials and equipment
  • Produce a full risk assessment and liaise with your own H&S expert
  • Ensure adequate insurance, health and safety needs and DBS requirements
  • Issue press releases according to your needs
  • Write joining instructions for the volunteering team
  • Provide expert facilitators on the day to ensure smooth running of the event
  • Provide detailed feedback from employees and the charity to evaluate the project value
  • Create three minute web-ready video of the day
  • Opportunity for company branded, refillable bottles and lunch boxes.

We'd love to have you join us and help make a difference.
