Simple and Thames21 Big Wet Wipe Count 2021!
23rd September 2021 @ 9:45 am - 1:00 pm
Help Simple & Thames21 gather crucial data on the wet wipes settling in the Thames by getting down and dirty to count them!
Every time it rains in London, the sewers overflow which means the wet wipes that people flush down the loo end up the river. The problem is now so bad that hundreds of thousands are depositing on the river bed.
In order to say how bad the problem is, we are going to get as many people as we can to pick up all the wet wipes, count them and record the grand total. Wet wipes are such a big problem on the tidal Thames we’re running two events this year.
