Hovertravel helps clean up Ryde Sands
A team of volunteer litter-pickers from Hovertravel were mucking in today to help rid Ryde beach of rubbish, making this their third consecutive month of beach cleans.
Hovertravel’s HoverGreen approach is a staff-led initiative which identifies ways in which the business can use its resources to help the local environment. One of the first suggestions from the teams was to ask for volunteers for a monthly beach clean.
HoverGreen Ambassador at Hovertravel, Chris Davis explains: “The beach is such a lovely scenic location and we found we made a difference in just over an hour. Bringing people together from across the 85 staff in the business meant involving people from both terminals and across all departments. We even had staff come in on their day off. It was so satisfying to know that our efforts are improving the environment for both residents and visitors.”
The latest beach clean collected some of the biggest items so far – with a car tyre and a random piece of glass fibre being retrieved from the shore just along from our Ryde terminal. The team also found also nappies, tea bags and a random silicon-filled pouch alongside the usual sweet wrappers and cans.
