Bag it and #binit4beaches

f you take your dog for a walk along one of the UK’s beautiful beaches, please bag and bin its poo. Bacteria present in dog poo can be particularly harmful to beach users and can affect water quality.

Millions of people head to UK’s beaches to relax, paddle, walk and swim every year, so we all want water quality to be the best it can be. If you visit the beach with your dog, please bag and bin your dog poo, keeping the beach safe and clear for everyone to enjoy.

#binit4beaches is a collaborative project comprising of Keep Britain Tidy, the Environment Agency, the Marine Conservation Society and a variety of water companies across the UK.
