Strip the Beach Cleans Up

Brighton environmentalists are invited to take off their clothes and join a naked beach clean-up campaign on Sun 18 Sept. Organised by the World Cetacean Alliance, Strip The Beach aims to clear the beach of rubbish. Organisers also intend to bring together a Guinness World Record number of naked people for the event. “At present, eight million tons of plastic is added to our oceans every year,” said Russell Arnott, event organiser and Outreach Officer at WhaleFest: Incredible Oceans. “I can’t even begin to imagine what that much plastic looks like. We are hoping that this event will capture people’s imaginations and raise awareness of issues surrounding ocean plastic.” While Brighton has the UK’s only Green constituency and is located within the Brighton and Lewes Downs UNESCO Biosphere Region, council funding cuts for street and beach cleaning means marine litter and debris continues to wash up and remain on our shores. Taking place on Brighton’s historic Black Rock naturist beach, the event is supported by WhaleFest: Incredible Oceans, Brighton Naked Bike Ride and Brighton & Hove City Council.
