Our Beach Clean campaign is part of our Fathom DNA.

The last 6 years we have cleaned many beaches and waterways in Dorset, filling 100’s of bags with all sorts of plastic and rubbish (some over 25 years old) including; car parts, dog poo bags, toys, aerosol cans and even underwear!


Our environment is precious and we want to protect it. Living by the sea, the plastic pollution problem in our oceans is close to our hearts. We want to do our bit, and maybe inspire others to do theirs.

Our oldest find,
a 25 year old crisp packet!

We are astounded (and saddened) how new it still looks and how little has biodegraded...

"Thanks for the bottle. Great idea.

I’m going to propose a ban on plastic bottles in the icon facilities, each staff member will get a Chilly bottle with their name on it.

Congrats on the Beach Clean."

"I loved my bottle. You’ve inspired me so much we are changing our letters to be on recycled paper and we are thinking how we can do more to help the environment here at Moneycorp.

Also, when I’m home in a few weeks i'm going to do a beach clean-up too."



Kirsty Garner, Head of Marketing.
Moneycorp

"I hope it went well and you had a good turnout.

Great idea – people are starting to realise the enormity of the plastic problem we are facing, but few are changing their habits. Perhaps make it regular event?

Thank you so much for my water bottle which will be really, really useful and make an impact on my plastic usage."
