Key to Beach Litter

My copies of the Guide to Beach Litter arrived this week. They are the result of the work of Julia Barton and her Littoral Art project. Copies are £3 each, and you can order by e-mail and pay by PayPal if you get in touch with Julia. They are excellent, large, and I look forward to using them with students...

This project is my response to my fear of drowning in litter, which I am increasingly experiencing when on beaches around our coast. So often now high-tide lines are marked not by seaweed but by a massive tangle of manmade materials dropped or washed up. Even on beaches which look clean, grains of sand are often laced with acrylic fibres, cigarette ends, plastic granules…….and more.’
