Corporate Volunteers

BeachPatrol can work with your corporate group. We can, put on presentations about plastic litter, what it is doing to our environment and marine life.

"Thank you so much for a great and eye opening day! In my personal life I am so much more conscious of my behaviour and in our professional life we are motivated to make a difference!"

We can also take staff out on a beach or street litter for a survey. During these exercises the people work in small groups along the beach or street to record the litter count and type using BeachPatrol survey sheets. At the end of the survey the sheets are collated and the staff work out the total litter picked up in that session and what the litter types are. This provides a great education to them and helps show them how to cut back on our common problem waste items. Donations to cover BeachPatrol staff time and are gratefully accepted. They are not taxable deductible at the moment.
