The Clean Seas Please team visited Hastings Beach recently to give out some personalised Clean Seas Please poo bags to the owners of our furry friends.
Did you know that government statistics show the UK dog population is between 6.5 and 7.4 million and that they astonishingly produce 1,000 tonnes of faeces every day! Like any untreated faeces they can increase the bacterial content of the water and so if we don’t pick them up from the pavements and fields these can end up being washed down the drains and end up in our sea.
Mans best friend needs a helping paw to clean up after themselves. We know they all do it, so why not check before you leave home that you have a bag – we do. Also have you noticed that many bins now take dog waste as well as litter? Clearing up will help us all to keep our beaches and water clean.
Take a look at some of the dogs we met below!
