Infinergy takes Great British Beach Clean to Kimmeridge Bay in Dorset

Infinergy took part in the Great British Beach Clean yesterday and headed off to Kimmeridge Bay beach in Purbeck, Dorset as part of their annual eco day. The Dorset Wildlife Trust, who have a marine conservation centre at Kimmeridge, oversaw the proceedings, providing a safety briefing, bags, gloves and pick-up-grabbers.

Over 20 large bags of rubbish were collected by the team who spent the day picking up a variety of plastics and all sorts of household items. The largest find was a huge fishing net which needed seven people to drag off the beach to the conservation centre, who will dispose of it appropriately.

A spokesperson for Infinergy said: “Improving the environment is what we do every day by increasing the amount of renewable energy in the UK, something we are fully committed to. However wind development is a very lengthy process which can take years. Cleaning a beach is very satisfying as you can see the result of your efforts straight away, making a difference to local landscapes, habitats and wildlife.”

The Great British Beach Clean is organised by the Marine Conservation Society (MSC) and is now in its 21st year. MSC encourages its 10,000 volunteers to supply data on what rubbish they picked up which provides the charity with evidence to campaign for cleaner seas and beaches.
