Story

The Coastline Runner is an initiative started by Luke Douglas-Home CEnv, founder of A Future Without Rubbish CIC (link here) and is a Chartered Environmentalist.

It started as a lone man’s mission (here), to overcome frustrations over the lack of efficacy and impact of COP 26 and has turned into a growing initiative with immediate results in reducing plastic pollution of our seas. Luke aims to run and swim as much of the coastline as possible within the first year of the UN’s ‘Decade of Ocean Science’, collecting shoreline plastic.

Luke started running on 1st of November 2021, and has been running in stretches of around 20 to 30 Km per run, and collecting plastic waste in his reusable One Bag Zero Waste (bag made of recyclable plastic).

In every run, local residents are encouraged to come along and support him. Attendees can also take part in a ‘2-minute rubbish clean’ and they will be given a ‘One Bag Zero Waste’ bag to become involved in the Coastline Runner initiative for the future.

So far Luke has run 200 Km, from Lowestoft to Sutton Bridge, completing the entire Norfolk County.

He has collected 50 Kg of plastic during his run, preventing it from going to our seas and polluting our environment.

“Shoreline plastic is rubbish destined to enter our seas, harming wildlife and irreversibly entering the food chain. There must be systemic change to prevent millions of tonnes from entering the seas every year. Even if you don’t care about other animals in our environment, care about yourself – we ingest the equivalent of one credit card of plastic every week, for goodness sake!” - Luke Douglas-Home

He is now starting Lincolnshire county on the 1st of June and needs your help to continue his mission of running the entire coast of England. Please donate and follow his journey on Instagram @TheCoastlineRunner
