Plastic problem

18th April 2017

No strictly a safety notice - unless you're a native species trying to live in the river - but certainly something we need to be proactive about.

Some interesting reading in today's Guardian;

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/apr/13/londons-plastic-water-bottle-waste-out-of-control-mayor-warned-deposit-return-scheme-recycling

the Thames 21 report is here;

As major users of the river and major users of water bottles, of various types, can we make sure all our bottles are removed from the foreshore after every outing.

Let's do our bit to keep the river we have a privilege to use and enjoy as clean as possible.

Thanks,
