An amazing 220kg of litter was collected on Porthcawl beach on Sunday, June 25 by 72 local volunteers, part of a collaborative effort by Barefoot Wine Bubbly and Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) as part of Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project, an initiative that encourages the British public to ‘Leave Only Footprints’ on the UK’s beaches.

Olga Senkina, marketing director at Barefoot Wine Bubbly, said: “At Barefoot Wine, our mission is to make the world a better place through wine and the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project is a great example of how we do this. We are very proud to have worked with 6,200 volunteers to collect 13 tonnes of litter from UK beaches over the last nine years.

Dom Ferris, head of community and engagement at SAS, said; “Over the past decade it has never ceased to amaze us how incredible community spirit can be, something we see every year at the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project.”
