The Great British Beach Clean

Liz Earle joined Britain’s biggest beach clean and litter survey to highlight single use plastic water bottle pollution

Wellbeing expert Liz Earle joined the fight against plastic pollution on Monday 19th September, at the Marine Conservation Society’s (MCS) Great British Beach Clean in Bournemouth, supported by water filter experts BRITA.

The beauty entrepreneur, who is a BRITA ambassador, helped volunteers on Bournemouth beach to gather single use plastic bottles, carrier bags and other litter that has been washed up, blown there or dropped.

The Great British Beach Clean is the only UK-wide beach clean that not only spruces up hundreds of beaches around the coast, but records the litter it finds as part of a global beach clean count.

Single use plastic water bottles are a growing problem in the UK, with adults using 7.7 billion a year, according to recent OnePoll research on behalf of BRITA. Many of these end up in landfill or on our beaches.

West country resident, Liz Earle said, “I love the coast and my family beach walks often turn into litter picks, so it means a lot to join the Great British Beach Clean supported by BRITA, so close to where I live.

“The increasing amount of pollution in the UK, particularly from single-use plastic water bottles, is a major concern. Asking people to reduce their plastic use, while considering sustainable alternatives is key, if we’re to protect the environment for future generations.”

Me-Mo: The History of a Great Little Company

Eight years down the road and with over 20,000 happy customers under our (fan) belts, Me-Mo (short for Me-Motor) is a thriving little company with big ambitions.

I always say ‘we’ and ‘our’ when referring to the company, still keeping the vision alive that I had almost 9 years ago: to create a woman-friendly motoring related brand that offers a fun and viable alternative to many of the mainstream outlets, often fronted by a grease-monkey mentality.

Me-Mo offers funky and fabulous kit for your motor: from colourful and practical car seat covers and steering wheel covers (made by my lovely seamstresses in the UK), to car organisers and car flowers and vases and a host of other motoring related products. If, like me, you have always dreaded making the trip to Halfords, I had high hopes that I could create an online resource that might in some part, deem that particular trip unnecessary.
