Chow down on a free sustainable burger, in Brighton seafront venue this weekend

You can claim a free Moving Mountains burger this weekend on Brighton beach. Part of the ‘Clean Beaches, Dirty Burgers’ campaign collaboration between Moving Mountains and Beach Guardian. 

So… what’s the catch?

The campaign is part of the Big Brighton Beach Clean. Beach litter picks are happening Sunday through Tuesday. After picking your litter, you can claim a free plant based burger from Loading Bar. A popular board game bar venue on the seafront.

Litter picks begin at 10am, 12pm, and 2pm, held by Beach Guardian. A Cornwall based community interest company, founded by a father-daughter duo.

Seaside games and free merchandise will also be hosted alongside the beach clean and burgers. So, you can make a whole day of celebrating the Brighton seaside and protecting our oceans. 

Moving Mountains burgers 

Moving Mountains are leading the change around plant based food with their innovate products. Holding sustainability, taste, and health at the core of everything they do. Creating products with 92 per cent lower emissions and 70 per cent less water than the meat equivalent.

Eloise Bristow, head of marketing at Moving Moutains said “…we know that, with a problem as huge as climate change, people can often feel that their actions are insignificant, but we believe that small acts on a large scale can make a huge difference to the sustainable future of Brighton. With our Clean Beach, Dirty Burgers campaign, we hope to inspire the Brighton community and beyond to feel just that – and champion small swaps at scale, be that a plant based pattie or litter picking”.

The Beach Guardians

Based in Cornwall and co-founded by a father and daughter, the community interest company has worked to remove plastics and rubbish from beaches. With educational efforts made in schools to workshop with students on the environment and improve the health of the planet and communities that inhabit it. 

Additionally, the weight of all litter collected will be donated to Beach Guardian. So, the litter you collect will go a longer way than just clearing Brighton beach! 

Co-founder of Beach Guardian, Emily Stevenson, shared her thoughts on the campaign. “It’s an awesome opportunity for us to collaborate on this exciting initiative and we are so excited to see as many people as possible down on the beach to help us tackle plastic pollution. Plastic waste is something that affects us all and has reached every corner of the globe, but this is exactly why we are able to tackle it, because there is something for everyone to do to join this fight against plastic.”
