A big thank you to all
our beach cleaners.

Why we've started our beach cleans.

This year our growing plastic problem has really been highlighted. We wanted to get involved locally, highlight the issue and help clean up our beaches. We spent a morning on a 2 mile stretch of Blue Flag beaches and filled 9 bags with all sorts of rubbish including; numerous straws, 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 help others do theirs.

...and Kev came a
close second with
part of a car.

Our most unusual
find, goes to Alex.

She found a plastic army man. We have located
a new home for him in our studios

"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 Im going to do a beach clean-up too."



Kirsty Garner, Head of Marketing.

"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."
