Paddle Against Plastic - Isle of Skye SUP Expedition

PAP Header 116700402 1654621664834723 1564350300205406765 oPaddle Against Plastic is a platform for highlighting the issues of marine plastic, but more importantly proposing simple solutions, through Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP), adventure, and reconnecting with the environment.

Back on the 24th July, Cal Major, Zoe Satsias and Zoe's dog Skye, set out to circumnavigate the 400 miles of the Isle of Skye's rugged coastline. Although the coastline is stunning and untouched, marine litter was found, including plastic bottles and a traffic cone! This goes to show that no one place is any less vulnerable to the harmful effects of plastic waste in our seas and oceans. 

Whitby & Co supported the team in the expedition by donating the following:

Whitby EDC Range - UK Legal Carry

EDC Knives

See the new range of Every Day Carry UK Legal Pocket Knives with Slipjoint feature.

The Slipjoint is not an actual locking mechanism, however it acts by creating more resistance when the blade is open and therefore does not close as easily as a traditional pocket knife. When extra pressure is applied the blade will fold away.

Whitby’s Team Up with SAS to Clean up the Beaches!

Beach Clean TeamOn Saturday 6th May a team of 15 volunteers from Whitby & Co descended on a Cumbrian Beach to rid it of its litter! This was one of 400+ ‘Big Spring Beach Cleans’ organised in association with Surfers Against Sewage.Beach Clean Beach Bottle

Despite concentrating on a short 300 metre stretch of beach, the team picked up almost 12kg of litter. Items included beer cans, discarded beach toys, cotton buds, tampon applicators, disposable BBQs, wire and even a large battery! And, as is usually the case, the biggest offenders were single use plastic bottles. None of these items should be found discarded on the beach or in the sea – Beach Clean Rubbishsmall items such as cotton buds, can tabs and bottle tops can be ingested by marine life and just imagine the pain that is caused by being tangled up in wire!

Surfers Against Sewage recently reported “Recent surveys have shown that there are almost 160 plastic bottles for every mile of UK shoreline and that plastic pollution is affecting almost every part of our oceans”. Surfers Against Sewage are constantly working to encourage communities to ‘refuse and refill’.

Features and Benefits

Smith's have provided some videos illustrating the features and benefits of their products, along with some handy 'how-to' guides. Take five and have a look.



Waste Beneath the Waves


Waste Beneath the

Whitby Marketing Team visited the ‘Waste Beneath the Waves’ Exhibition at The Wildman Gallery in our home town of Kendal. This exhibition was held in association with Cumbria Wildlife Trust and local artist Ellie Chaney.

All sculptures have been created by Ellie, along with Schools, Colleges and Community Groups around Barrow. Made from marine litter that was collected by partners of the Cumbria Wildlife Trust during four, two hour beach cleans on the South Walney Nature Reserve, Walney Island. The litter included items such as balloons, children’s toys, even a diver’s hood! Sadly though, it’s mostly huge amounts of fishing netting and plastic bottles.




Where does marine letter come from?

  • Beach and coastal users
  • Poorly managed industrial waste of landfill sites
  • Toiletries and cleaning products
  • Storm water and sewage discharges
  • Ships and other vessels

FACT - 50% of marine litter is attributed to shoreline and recreational activities

What is marine litter made up of?

  • Plastic (the most common type of marine litter)
  • Fishing gear
  • Sewage debris
  • Metal
  • Glass
  • Paper and cardboard
  • Rubber

FACT - Plastic litter on beaches has increased 140% since 1994



There are many ways to reduce waster in daily life.

  • Choose products with less unnecessary packaging
  • Don't flush anything other than pee, poo and paper!
  • Use canvas and reusable bags
  • Avoid single use products and invest in reusable items such as coffee cups and drinks bottles
  • Make use of recycling points
  • Choose products that have already been recycled to reduce need for new materials to be made
  • Avoid products containing microbeads

FACT - Plastic bottles will remain in our seas for 45 years - even after they break down, the plastic fragments last forever

We would like to thank the Wildlife Trust for putting on this fantastic exhibition and for providing us with additional imagery.
