Hamptons International hosted its first beach clean of the year with Surfers Against Sewage at Hove Beach, where 35 staff members cleaned two miles of the beach, removing a vast array of rubbish and plastic pollution brought in by the morning tide, including coffee cups, bits of plastic and paper.
The event was part of the Big Spring Clean hosted by Surfers Against Sewage across the week, mobilising 300,000 volunteers at 600 events across the UK, on mountains, rivers and beaches.
Lesley Cairns, MD, Hamptons International says, “We are delighted to have hosted our first beach clean and what a way to do it – with 1000s of others. 35 of our people took part, having fun and raising awareness. “Helping to save the planet is more important to us than ever during our 150th anniversary year and we are volunteering to clear litter, encouraging people to ditch plastic bottles, minimising our consumption, it all adds up to contribute to a larger change.”
Hugo Tagholm, CEO of Surfers Against Sewage said, “Hamptons International was the first national estate agent to join the movement. Further partnerships and initiatives are planned!”
