SCHOOL BEACH CLEANS
If you're a school or organisation looking for an interactive, easy to organise beach clean experience, look no further!
At EBB & FLO, we believe that kids are the future. Our mission is to lead by example and empower our younger generations, inspire them to take action, and encourage them to make a positive impact in their communities. Our beach cleans provide a purposeful opportunity for children to get involved and learn about the importance of protecting our environment.
Kids have a unique perspective on the world - they see things in black and white, and they have a natural desire to help when they see something is wrong. By working with kids, we're able to tap into that unfiltered passion and help them develop the skills and knowledge they need to become environmental advocates for life.
We've collected a wide range of beach cleaning and educational resources over the years, and we're happy to share them with schools and organisations that share our commitment to making a positive impact. Whether you're a local school or from afar, we welcome anyone who wants to join us in making a difference for our planet.

We recommend bringing water, preferably in reusable bottles, and sun cream is always a good shout.

Where can we park?
We have a limited amount of onsite parking which we are happy for you to use during your Beach Clean. If this fills up there are pay and display parking bays all along the seafront*.
*Please note during the summer season the parking bays fill up fast, so we recommend starting early, from 10am.
What equipment do you have?
- Litter pickers
- Hand sanitiser
- Nurdle Trommel Machine
- 2MBC Board (2 minute beach clean)

Do we need our own equipment?
In short, no. We provide all the equipment you need*.
*Please note we have a limited amount of equipment to use, for large groups 50+, organisations may need to provide additional equipment.
What is a Nurdle Trommel machine?
We're glad you asked! A Nurdle Trommel is a drum filter which allows the filtering of small plastic nurdles from the beach sand. By inserting a shovel full of sand into the drum and slowly spinning it around, the sand will fall through the holes and only the plastic will remain.
For more information please give our friends from Nurdle a visit.
What are Pollu toys?
Quite simply Pollu toys are plush toys designed to teach kids about the effects of plastic pollution on our wildlife, in a child sensitive way. For more information please watch the Pollu Toys YouTube video.
