Our seventh Plastic Ocean Festival event was a great success this Sunday. Volunteers helped to remove 647 pieces of litter from the River Thames. Our survey result showed that food wrappers came on top once again as the most abundant litter item in the Thames.

We have also had a visit from the local MP Ruth Cadbury.
The screening of ‘A Plastic Ocean was also very successful with the chairman of the Oxfordshire Federation Of Womens Institute also attending. They have found the documentary to be a real eye opener.
Following the screening we have had a long and engaging Q&A session with the attendees where we discussed the issue of plastic pollution not just worldwide but in London, and were able to highlight what each individual can do to help the environment.
Our next event will be held on the 23rd September during this year's Foreshore Festival. Follow the link to find out more.
