Beach Rugby Wales are pleased to announce that the latest organisation to join the BRW #RugbyFamily is Gavin Griffiths Group.
Beach Rugby Wales are taking steps to become a greener tournament and only want to Leave Footprints in the sand of Swansea Bay.
With the help of Gavin Griffiths Group– we aim to encourage players and visitors to be more environmentally conscious, particularly in relation to waste disposal especially whilst visiting Swansea Bay.
Beach Rugby Wales’, Ashleigh said “Its great to have the Gavin Griffith Group on-board with this years tournament, what they don’t know about recycling and rubbish isn’t worth knowing. We want every one to enjoy the day and enjoy our beaches, but we need to help keep them fabulous by clearing up at the end of the day, putting rubbish in the correct labelled bins provided – red/black for general waste and green for recycling. With the Griffiths Group this will be possible.”
Gareth Thomas of Gavin Griffiths Group said “As a company, we have a love for the game of rugby and we cant wait for Beach Rugby Wales this summer. Swansea Bay is a lovely environment. Its important to take your waste home or use the bins provided. Litter that gets left behind can have a harmful effect on coastal wildlife, sadly these creatures have little way of defending themselves from its impacts. Therefore, by making sure we responsibly dispose of waste we can help to protect them.”
Leave Only Footprints Top tips:-
- Before you pack up and go home – have a quick check around the beach to make sure you’ve picked up everything you bought with you to the beach – don’t forget that plastic toys left on the sand end up in the sea – break up into micro plastic and get mistaken for food by marine life and sea birds.
- Always carry your own reusable water bottle and cup. Bring your own re-usable drinking bottles – save our sea life and save money too!
- Bring your own re-useable food containers, cutlery and even ashtrays if you’re a smoker! Trillions of cigarette butts are thrown into the environment every year, where they leach nicotine and heavy metals before turning into microplastic pollution.
- If beach bins are full – take your rubbish home and dispose of it safely.
