The M&S Beach Clean at Glyne Gap not only helped clear the UK’s coastline of tonnes of rubbish but resulted in enough recyclable material to be turned into Frisbees.

Marks and Spencer said the Big Beach Clean-up has resulted in the opportunity to have fun and support the environment even further with fun Frisbees.

A spokesperson added: “Its a great way to get outdoors with family and friends this summer.

“The Beach Clean Frisbee is a limited edition Frisbee, made from recycled plastic – some of which was collected by those participating in the Big Beach Clean-up, including local residents, M&S employees and Marine Conservation Society volunteers, and are now being sold in the Bexhill store.

“The Frisbees awill continue to support the Marine Conservation Society.”

Available to buy now in-store at M&S Bexhill and online at www.marksandspencer.com, 50p from every sale goes to the Marine Conservation Society.

This year nearly 8000 volunteers turned out to clean 140 beaches and canals across the UK at the Big Beach Clean-Up 2014.

They collected 25,000 tonnes of rubbish, including 10,000 cotton buds, a plastic leg, two motorbikes and a set of false teeth.
