Morecambe & Heysham Beach Clean

Morecambe and Heysham Beach Clean

There is a small group of people – Morecambe Shore Beach Buddies who clean the beach on a regular basis but it is not an organised group. Also their aim is to use social media and blogs to raise awareness of organizations and activities which people can get involved in to improve the environment of the Morecambe Bay SSSI.

Kinder Eggs. Ferrero sell 3.5 Billion a year. Is this a Plastic Problem?

That’s a lot of Plastic. Even more will be sold by Ferrero International S.A. now that they are available in the USA after being banned for 50 years. So there is the wrapper on the chocolate, inside that is the well known 2 part plastic capsule insert and inside that –  a plastic toy made of a number of plastic components.

How long do they last? Not long, as I recall from buying them for my own children occasionally.

So at least 3 x 3.5 Billion plastic items (without counting the components of the ‘toy’ which can vary).  They will go into going into landfill or recycling. Although I have found a few on the Beach.

This is single use plastic unless there are a few Kinder Egg collectors with basements or attics full of the toys.

Maybe Ferrero International S.A. will replace the plastic with bio degradeable components which the Lego company are doing. We can only hope

Keep Britain Tidy

Help us clean up the country

2 – 25th March 2018

The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.

We want to inspire 400,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. Join our growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.

Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.

There is a big calendar of events. The local group @MCSLancs do Beach Cleans and also have a calendar of meetings. The last beach cleans were Dec 2017  and March 2018 at Half Moon Bay, Heysham. The ones in the next few months locally are Formby and Whitehaven but keep an eye on the local Facebook in case of others 

Beach cleans

Beachwatch is our national beach cleaning and litter surveying programme – helping people all around the UK to care for their coastline.

Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. It’s also dangerous for people and damaging to our tourism and fishing industries. We all have a part to play in turning the tide on litter. Join an event or organise your own and be part of the most influential fight against marine litter in the UK!

More than ‘just’ a beach clean

Always Check the Tide Times – there is a great free App MY TIDE TIMES

Usually finish 1 hour before a high tide or Start 1 hour afterwards in Morecambe and Heysham but it the tide is over 8 Metres then there may be little shoreline available.IMG_5286

 

Volunteer

You can volunteer and tidy up any part of any beach yourself. There are many volunteers who tidy areas of Beaches from Bolton le Sands to Middleton Beach on a regular basis including the Trumacar Tigers from Trumacar Primary.

Dog walkers have been seen tidying up plastic and they are in a good situation to pick up the plastic while walking the Dog.

The Morecambe abd Heysham Pebble Art group help out when placing pebbles for people to find – or picking up the odd pebble

Dogs are banned from Morecambe’s North and South beaches between 1 May and 30 September each year. From the beach with the Boats North of the Town Hall to the Battery Car Park at the West End

Lancaster City Council

They are responsible for the beaches and do respond quickly if there is anything that needs removing urgently by phoning the main switchboard.

The department who looks after the Beaches is called ‘Public Realm’  & I have heard on the grapevine that they may let people have a litter picking stick and council bags if they request them.

1-IMG_5296-001

The beaches are cleaned by council staff but I don’t know with what frequency they go around with the litter picking sticks, Have seen them in the summer before and after events such as the Carnival and Kite Festival and in fact there are a lot of volunteers who help to the point where if you go near the Midland the day after an event then you would be astonished to find that there had been thousands of people there only 24 hours ago.

Finally, the Council has a beach tractor with an attachment for picking up litter and it is deployed on a regular basis on the sandy area. Amie, the driver, does a comprehensive clean on the beaches from Thornton Road where the boats are to the West End.

WAYNE and KODA – a National litter picking inspiration.

Who? You might ask. Wayne and his dog Koda are travelling 6000 miles around the Coast of Britain and picking up litter as they o along. They rely on donations and the kindess of strangers for accommodation.

@WayneKoda on Twitter and also on Facebook

Wayne is an inspiration to everyone who has picked up some plastic crisp packets or discarded water bottles etc., on the beaches of the UK

Plastic Free Shopping (10) Lancaster and Morecambe. I am almost Supermarket Free

I don’t miss the Supermarkets, all the Plastic and aimless wandering around like sheep. Also, how did it get to this, where the Supermarkets were able to get rid of all the fantastic local shops?

Local Greengrocers, Fresh Fish shops and Butchers had to put up with rows of shops going bust and high parking charges. It all seems so wrong now.

A few items still need to be purchased from Supermarkets, toothpaste and dishwasher tablets are a couple of them, unless I ditch the dishwasher.

This is what I am buying at the moment.

MILK – now in Bottles, also buy eggs from Mark Seward. He is on Facebook

BREAD – best Bread ever from Beetham Post Office shop, I phone an order for 4 loaves and put 3 in the Freezer – where they taste just as good when they are thawed. They are closed Tues Wed Beetham PoSt Office Shop

FISH – Edmondsons Fresh Fish on Yorkshire St, West End, Morecambe. Take containers. There is another Fresh Fish shop in Morecambe opposite the Police Station.

fish

FRUIT AND VEG – Morecambe Market on Tues Thurs Sat Sun, they will put the items in your own bag, only one or two items are sold in plastic

MEAT – Morecambe Market Butchers stall – they will put the items in your own containers

TOOTHBRUSH – Bamboo Toothbrush from Single Step Co-op Lancaster – the bristles are still plastic  though

TEA – Loose tea from most supermarkets.

Well that’s it.

If you want to – it can be done

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plastic Free Life (9) I get excited by a loaf of Bread

I started a blog on shopping without plastic full of hope but there is very little change ‘on the shelf’ by the major supermarkets. There was the major announcement by Iceland Foods which sent all the other supermarkets into a fenzy of meetings and public relations statements to calm down the public freny which they see as maybe temporary.

If anything, as far as I can see, the public frenzy is only just starting with many people voting with their feet and seeking alternative suppliers such as local greengrocers, milk in bottles, bakers, butchers and fishmongers. Some of the town markets and farm shops have see an increase in enquires about plastic free produce and are sourcing paper bags for the customers.

If I call into Morrisons, Sainsbury and Asda etc., it is only for basic essentials now. I try to get supplies from anywhere I can and it is a measure of the current situation that I was excited about the purchase of a loaf of bread from a the Post Office Shop and Cafe in Beetham, near Milnthorpe. It looked tasty and was supplied in a paper bag. It tastes fantastic.

I may have to make a round trip to Beetham every week (near Milnthorpe) but as I have mentioned this on the ‘Plastic Free Cumbria’ Facebook, here, and on Twitter. I may have to phone and reserve a loaf.

Plastic Free Cumbria has over 6000 followers in only a couple of weeks.

I am still using the loose leaf tea and buying fruit and vegetables from Morecambe Market – as I mentioned its open Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, I did buy a loaf of bread from the Single Step Wholefood Co-operative on Penny St, Lancaster a week ago too. Otherwise. Using up most things I can in the cupboard and freezer and will replace with the best alternatives I can find. At least Aldi do some frozen food in cardboard boxes without inner plastic. Some Kievs and fish.

Will have to visit Iceland Foods though and see if anything has changed. The problem is that unless there is a highly visible sticker – how are we to know if the whole product is plastic free?

The supermarkets are bogged down in supplier contracts etc. Just imagine a farm with an expensive machine costing £100,000 or more with the pickers sat along a boom on either side, all the mechanism is geared to popping stuff in plastic bags, either there or in a farm building, so it will take time to make changes.

In this article there is a mention of the South Lakeland District Council

https://www.aldc.org/2018/02/reducing-plastic-waste-motions-a-letter-to-retailers/

LIB DEM MOTION TO BE PUT TO SOUTH LAKELAND DISTRICT COUNCIL

This council will become a single use plastic free council by phasing out the use of single use plastic products such as bottles, cups, cutlery and drinking straws in council activities, where it is reasonable to do so, by the end of 2018 and to encourage our facilities’ users local businesses and other local public agencies do the same by championing alternatives, such as reusable water bottles.

Lib Dem South Lakeland will also:

  • Be promoting the refill scheme, whereby retail businesses agree to free water refills. The app that allows businesses to sign up is really easy.

  • Have a free water fountain in our reception area and look to have them all around the area.

  • Investigate having locally branded water containers for sale.

There was also a council meeting in Lancaster in Sep 2017 about plastic related matters.

Link for discussion of plastic coffee cups, plastic bottles and providing Drinking Fountains in Lancaster and Morecambe

Link above refers to Item 56 – in the Lancaster City Council Meeting 27th September.

So things are moving slowly at the moment but the change is starting in the schools all over the UK with the @SAScampaigns schools pack etc and individual children such as @LilysplasticPickup publicising the need for change. Many towns, cities, counties and even Scotland are banning plastic straws and cotton buds and once they have done that = the rest of single use plastic will follow.

Possibly the only concern that could slow the ‘will of the people’ could be how quickly manufacturers can supply alternatives.

The bread was really good

Plastic Free Shopping in Lancashire

I did a search on Google for the following, Farm Shops, Bakeries, Organic, Greengrocers, Vegan Vegetarian Restaurants, Delicatessens.

So without visiting them it is difficult to say as to what extent they are Plastic Free. However, I did a blog of the same for Lancaster and Morecambe and if you take some bags and containers with you then you may have some luck.

I will add places as I am informed – and also any suppliers of Milk in Glass Bottles to the doorstep (which was a popular item in the Lancaster and Morecambe Blog) as sales of milk in the glass bottles are soaring in the UK.

The main dairy with glass milk bottles in Lancaster, Morecmbe Carnforth and Pilling is @StephensonsFD  I heard they supply shops with glass milk bottles Stephensons Dairy Website

Plastic Free Shopping in Cumbria & Lake District

I did a search on Google for the following, Farm Shops, Bakeries, Organic, Greengrocers, Vegan Vegetarian Restaurants, Delicatessens.

So without visiting them it is difficult to say as to what extent they are Plastic Free. However, I did a blog of the same for Lancaster and Morecambe and if you take some bags and containers with you then you may have some luck.

I will add places as I am informed – and also any suppliers of Milk in Glass Bottles to the doorstep (which was a popular item in the Lancaster and Morecambe Blog) as sales of milk in the glass bottles are soaring in the UK.

The Tebay North and South Farm Shops on the M6 are well known for the Farm Shop ethos and are probably one of the largest shops of this type in Cumbria. Tebay North and South Farm Shop
