Plastic Fishing on the River Lea

October 2 @ 11:30 am - 5:00 pm

Muster a crew to explore your riverway and loot the litter with nets and grabbers as you go

About this event

Ahoy me hearties! We’re looking for willing mateys to hop onboard our punts made from 99% recycled plastic, powered by electric engines and fish out litter from the River Lea you go #TreasureYourRiver

Our event is one of six clean-ups taking place in major cities across the UK as part of the buccaneering anti-littering campaign Treasure Your River. We’re working with Hubbub, The Rivers Trust, and other partners to keep our rivers in ship-shape and to stop litter reaching the seven seas.

Our trusty skipper will take you and your crew out on to the River Lea where you will fish as much plastic out of the river as possible. On return we will sort and log the plastic to provide essential information for the campaign to Treasure Our Rivers.
