  SUFFOLK SAND

    Plastic not only litters the beach, it is becoming the beach. Researchers have found that microscopic fragments of plastic are widespread in sediments around British shores.
    Often thought of as ‘disposable’, plastic is actually nearly impossible to dispose of, taking between 500 and 1000 years to break down in seawater and then forming microscopic toxic particles which continue to contaminate our seas, our beaches, our wildlife - and maybe even the food on our plate.
    In a study of Northumbrian sand samples, microscopic plastic fibres were found in all the samples collected, some with more than 10,000 fibres per litre of sand (Thompson & Hoare, 1997).

    Suffolk Sand is collected by hand from East coast beaches. Each jar contains approximately 5 litres of sand including an estimated 50,000 microscopic plastic particles FREE inside!
