Love your Harbour Campaign
'Litter Free Coast and Sea' teamed up with Natural England and Dorset Wildlife Trust in 2020 to develop a campaign that raises awareness of discharging toilet waste at sea. 

The result is a campaign called 'Love Your Harbour', which aims to help spread the message about the importance of our own actions in keeping our boating environment as beautiful as possible. 

The key messages of the campaign are:

• If you love your harbour don’t treat it like a bog.

• Discharging untreated sewage from a boat in a harbour is extremely damaging and antisocial.

• Contamination has adverse effects on bathing water quality, marine ecosystems including coastal wildlife and aquaculture productions.
