KIMOUK have launched a new video to help promote Pick Up 3 Pieces, an initiative aimed at encouraging people to pick up 3 pieces of marine litter every time they visit their local beach.

For more information about why marine litter is so important, view their YouTube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6QhIL3ktYE or visit: www.pickup3.org.uk
