Nissan Volunteered Its Toughest Pickup to Help Tackle the Plastic Pollution on UK’s Most Remote Beaches

On Friday the 8th June, World Oceans Day, Nissan volunteered the Nissan Navara to help tackle beach plastic pollution.

In Cornwall, a father and his daughter pleaded for help to clear the local beaches. They have been clearing waste from beaches in Cornwall for 10 years and have set up a community group after realising the plastic problem was getting worse. Many volunteers came together and helped clear the beaches but they were struggling to reach remote locations and remove bulky rubbish with their family car, they posted on social media a request for help.

Nissan responded and volunteered the New Navara Off-Roader AT32 which is designed for the most extreme landscaping and can be fitted with a snorkel. The group were then able to reach the most challenging beaches and clear away all the waste.

Every year more than eight million tonnes of plastic end up in the world’s oceans but during the recent Great British Beach Clean Up, the Marine Conservation Society found 18 pieces of litter for every 100 metre stretch of UK beach surveyed.

Nissan are inviting community groups across Europe to nominate remote and tough-to-reach beaches or other locations where the Navara could help them to clean plastic waste.

If you would like to highlight an area of beach that needs cleaning you should use the free What3Words photo app to send an image of the beach plastic you have found along with the location to beachclean@nissan.co.uk.

Rob Stevenson said: “The beaches people visit – where they enjoy ice-creams and watch their kids build sandcastles – are just one view of the issue. There are many more remote and unseen parts of the coastline that volunteers either struggle to reach or need something to move larger items.

“Normally we’re using just our own family cars or DIY tools. Without help from Nissan and the Navara OFF-ROADER AT32, we could never have released the old nets buried in the sand dunes for years.”

Many beaches around the UK these are affected by the growing problem of plastic waste.

Ken Ramirez, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Nissan Europe, said: “The Navara OFF-ROADER AT32 is the perfect partner for Beach Guardian. Designed to take on the most challenging conditions like wet sand and rocks, and with a snorkel that allows it to better drive through water, it’s ideal to support their work on remote beaches.”

He added: “Community heroes like Emily and Rob, who give their own time to try to make a difference, are an inspiration to us all.”
