School pupils and volunteers teamed up to spruce up a Portishead Beach.
Gordano School students and members of environmental group Turn The Tide (TTT) worked together to tidy up Woodhill Bay on July 3.
More than 40 youngsters from years seven and eight took part and collected harmful plastics from the beach with hopes of protecting marine wildlife.
TTT spokesman Alex Mckie told the Times a 'staggering' amount of plastic and waste was collected by the pupils.
She said: "Thank to the students and teachers for joining us, a big well done.
"We look forward to teaming up with them again in the future."
TTT will host a talk called A Journey To A Plastic-less Portishead at Waitrose café, in Harbour Road, on Wednesday at 7.30pm.
