2 million pieces of litter are dropped every day in the UK, which costs £1 Billion of taxpayers money to clear up (annually). This cash could be used in our communities instead - in schools, parks, sports centres, libraries or community centres.
Litter affects our watercourses, beaches and everything that lives in and around them. Not only is litter unsightly, it can cause a real hazard to wildlife. "Rivers represent a key entry point of macro and microplastics to the ocean. River catchments can carry a significant plastic load to the ocean" UN Environment Programme 2016
RiverCare and BeachCare groups and volunteers work tirelessly clearing litter, in particular plastics, from their local rivers and beaches.
In the past year: 60,000kg litter collected. 35,000+ volunteer hours. Volunteer in East Anglia today! Join a RiverCare or BeachCare group near you!
