Litter Brand Audit
SAS has launched a brand-new auditing tool, to help volunteers record the companies most commonly behind the items that are being picked up at the same time.
All you need to do is take down the brand names of the products you collect and tally the amount for each brand in Surfers Against Sewage online form at https://www.sas.org.uk/brands/
This new toolkit comes almost ten years after the charity pioneered the first Plastic Pollution Audit, which highlighted the original ‘Dirty Dozen’ – the top 12 companies whose plastic was most commonly found on UK beaches.
The audit, which was launched in 2006, saw almost 600 pieces of identifiable marine litter returned back to the companies producing them as part of the charity’s ‘Return to Offender’ campaign. Among them, the top offenders included Nestle, Coca Cola, Walkers, Kraft, Tesco, Mars and Unilever, as well as other well-known household brands like PepsiCo, United Biscuits, Carlsberg, Co-op and Asda.
