FREE canvas bags for walkers to pack into their rucksack and take litter home with them, are now available here through The Outdoor Guide.
Julia Bradbury, Trail magazine, and The Outdoor Guide (TOG) have rallied a group of saintly folks including HF Holidays, Premier Paper Group and the Camping and Caravanning Club to continue the Great British Spring Clean Campaign with Keep Britain Tidy, launched earlier this year.
Why is a campaign like this important? Well…
- An estimated 8.3 billion tonnes of virgin plastic has been produced worldwide to date and does not disappear, it just turns into smaller pieces.
- In England alone, we discard 15 million plastic bottles a day.
- Less than half make it to a recycling plant, many get incinerated... and a staggering 700,000 end up being dumped.
- 225.3 pieces of plastic are found on British beaches per 100 meters.
