How Your Money is Spent

Donation currently make up about 5% of our income.

2021

Our 2021 pilot project cost around £1500, and we removed around 1 ton (estimate) of plastic (about 16 dumpy bag’s worth). So based on this we can remove 1KG at a cost of £1.50. This relied on us being able to dispose of waste for free at council run recycling centre, and willingness of land owners for us to wild camp on their land. We hope to find the same partnerships in our 2022 project, but cannot guarantee this. Hence the value of 1KG for £2.50. This allows for example for us to hire a lorry to take waste away for us, or to stay on a campsite. Hopefully if all goes well however, the figure will be closer to 1KG for £1.50 (even , increasing the amount of plastic removed. Donate to ocean plastic charity! Please.
