At Bush & Co, we’ve always believed in the importance of giving back to our local community and taking care of the environment. On Saturday, September 23rd, we had the privilege of participating in a company beach clean at Red Rock Beach in Dawlish Warren as part of the Great British Beach Cleaning Week. This event allowed us to support the research efforts of the Marine Conservation Society, an organisation dedicated to preserving and protecting our precious marine ecosystems.
Here’s a glimpse into our day at the beach and why it means so much to us as a local Devonshire business.
Our Love for the Local Community
As a Devon-based business, our roots run deep in the community. We understand that our success is intertwined with the well-being of the people and the environment around us. That’s why we’re committed to giving back and making a positive impact. Participating in events like the beach clean is just one way we show our appreciation for the community that has supported us for so many years.
Caring for Our Coastal Gem
Red Rock Beach is a hidden gem on the Devonshire coast. Its natural beauty and unique ecosystem are worth preserving, and we feel a strong responsibility to play our part in maintaining its pristine condition.
The Great British Beach Cleaning Week provides an excellent platform for individuals and businesses like ours to join forces with organisations like the Marine Conservation Society to protect our coastlines. By participating, we actively contribute to the ongoing research and efforts to combat plastic pollution and safeguard marine life.
