• Welsh activists vs drastic plastic

    drastic plastic 1Welsh surfer and ocean activist Laura Truelove recently helped lead a beach clean with nearly 70 children and teachers from a Swansea school – and staff from A Rocha UK’s partner St Madoc Centre, Llanmadoc.

    Kathryn Britton of Keep Wales Tidy also assisted with the two-hour clean-up. This marine task force gathered more than 30 bags of rubbish from one of these islands’ most spectacular shorelines.

    ‘Among the rubbish, there were all sorts from glass and plastic bottles to lighters, fisherman’s rope, cotton bud sticks, and even the odd shoe,’ said Laura (pictured), a representative for Surfers Against Sewage.


Let it grow

Help Eco Church grow. That’s the message from A Rocha UK chief Andy Atkins as he sounds a ‘wake-up call’. News of an appeal fund for the scheme accompanies the latest edition of A Rocha UK’s 'Root & Branch' magazine.


Get flushed with a free hippo

Churches who care for creation could be flushed with success at this month’s Christian Resources Exhibition (17th-20th May). For a free Toilet Hippo will be given to the first 25 who register each day with A Rocha UK’s Eco Church scheme.

Eco Church is a free online survey with supporting resources. The scheme equips churches to care for God’s world in their worship and teaching, buildings and land management, community and global action, and personal lifestyles. Toilet Hippo is a simple device to help conserve water in toilet cisterns.
