Prevented Ocean Plastic will support the 2023 UK Beach Tour
After a successful collaboration in 2022, Prevented Ocean Plastic™ and the UK Beach Tour- the United Kingdom’s national competition for beach volleyball players- are extending their partnership for the 2023 beach volleyball season. The continued cooperation will centre around raising awareness on the dangers of plastic pollution in our oceans and what we can do as a community to help.
One part of the Prevented Ocean Plastic™ mission is to clean coastlines and beaches wherever the Programme operates. With the UK Beach Tour (UKBT) running tournaments on beaches all across the country, it presents a perfect platform of athletes, staff, and event organisers to not only amplify and advocate the message, but also set a standard of how beach oriented businesses can minimise their impact on our oceans.
Since the previous UKBT, Prevented Ocean Plastic™ have greatly expanded their efforts, stopping over 1000 tonnes of plastic from entering the ocean per month and passing the mark of one billion bottles prevented last year.
“Preventing plastic from reaching our beaches and coastlines is important to everyone,” says Prevented Ocean Plastic™ director, Raffi Schieir, “which is why we’re so happy the UK Beach Tour is committed to partner and act with Prevented Ocean Plastic™. Support those collecting plastic from coastal regions for high quality recycling into new products. Thank you to all the athletes and supporters of the U.K. Beach Tour. Choose Recycled!”
UKBT Director Jake Sheaf is equally inspired by the second year of their partnership, “We are extremely excited to be extending the POP x UKBT partnership into this coming season, seeing how our brand values and industries are so highly interlinked. We have some exciting activations coming up this year that we hope will help spread the message and mission within the Beach Volleyball community.”
Prevented Ocean Plastic™ will support the 2023 UK Beach Tour throughout their schedule. Our team will be running pops-ups and events during the tour and there will always be a way to find out more information about our mission, and the choices we can all make to foster the circular economy, prevent ocean plastic, and help keep beaches and coastlines safe.
