Go Plastic Fishing 

Grab a litter pick, an eye patch and climb aboard one of the world's first 99% recycled plastic punts. You'll be taking the battle against litter to the water as you fish for plastic and other litter lurking beneath the surface. These unique litter picking trips show how ocean plastics are a problem that start at home.


Try litter-picking with a difference...

Scavenger hunts, treasure maps, and dance moves are something to look out for on our Treasure Your River litter-picks. Make your mark at a riverside near you and see how much treasure you can collect. Litter picks may include silent disco equipment, fancy dress, and a bottle o' rum afterwards.
