Surfers Against Sewage

The Million Mile Match

Plastic pollution is an outrage. It litters our beaches, it’s in the food we eat and even the water we drink. And the situation is getting worse. That’s why we created the Million Mile Clean – aiming to inspire, empower and support 100,000 volunteers to walk and clean 10 miles of the places they love. Will you donate today, and help fuel the biggest clean ever?

Situation

We’re on the beaches cleaning up plastic, lobbying government and business to make change where it really matters – and using our voices to shout for the Ocean! We’re growing the most ambitious clean-up mission yet, ridding our ecosystems of a Million Miles of plastic pollution. With your support, we can engage communities across the UK to connect with their local environments for their own physical and mental wellbeing and to clean up our coastlines, parks, rivers, mountains and streets.
