cleaning our waterways 1 paddle at a time

Hate litter creeping into even the most remote and wild of places, reminding you of how intrusive human life is on Planet Earth?

Sick of sitting on the beach and seeing bottle tops, cotton buds, and nondescript bits of plastic scattered amongst the strand line?

Have you noticed all those swamp monster like bits of trash lurking in what should be our beautiful and relaxing waterways?

Want to help raise awareness and spread the message of trying to significantly reduce our waste, recycle and clean up our act?

Well look no further – I have been part of the #PaddlePickup team. We are paddling from Bristol to London along the canal and river system picking up unsightly and dangerous rubbish which will undoubtedly end up in the sea whilst probably harming our inland waterway animal life along the way.
