Actisense begins Sea Life Trust partnership with ambitious beach clean-up operation

British marine electronics brand Actisense has marked the beginning of its official charity partnership with Sea Life Trust by clearing litter from a beach in Poole, England.

Across a two-hour period, 20 Actisense volunteers cleared Baiter Park, collecting a total of 22 kilograms of rubbish – which included discarded rubber gloves, plastic bottles, smashed glass and clothing.

Sea Life Trust is a not-for-profit organisation that works globally to protect marine life, championing the need for plastic-free oceans. Actisense has partnered with the charity to help safeguard marine life in the local area, raise awareness and make a positive difference to marine conservation.

In a release, Actisense says the Poole Beach clean underlines the company’s commitment to protecting its local marine environment, and represents the first in a series of initiatives, events and fundraising efforts to support Sea Life Trust.

Lesley Keets, chief operating officer at Actisense, commented, “This is the first of a number of charitable projects we have planned with Sea Life Trust. We look forward to helping the charity and making a difference to the conservation of marine wildlife locally. Due to the nature of our work, we have a very close connection to the marine environment, which makes us feel a responsibility for helping to protect it.”

Andy Bool, head of Sea Life Trust, added, “We are proud to be working with Actisense, who came out in force to help us clean our beautiful beach front. Our new partnership with Actisense will help to achieve our goals. We thank them for setting an example to the wider community and other businesses in the marine industry.”
