About this event
Plastic-Free Hackney's Monthly Pollution Pick** 🌿
Last Sunday of the Month From 10am -12pm Princess of Wales pub car park E5 9RB
Plastic-Free Hackney are delighted to be running our Monthly Pollution Picks throughout 2022!
We are super pleased to be able to guarantee TOPUP TRUCK will be with us every month, so you can reward your local activism with package-free chocolate/porridge/dog biscuits... whatever takes your fancy... The Truck will be with us from 10am, so you can do your shopping and leave it with us while you do the pick.
Please do book a ticket in advance of coming to the Pollution Pick - this way we are able to keep track of numbers and know how much equipment we will need.
Come dressed in robust outdoor clothes with appropriate footwear (no open toed shoes). Unless it's torrential rain we will go ahead whatever the weather, so waterproofs are recommended. Public loos are not readily available. We advise that you 'go' before you arrive ; )
Our equipment is limited, so please do only book if you know that you're going to come. If plans change we'd be grateful if you could cancel your ticket so we can ensure as many bodies are out there as possible removing the pollution.
**You may notice these events have been reborn as 'Pollution Picks'. The word 'litter' puts the onus on the people who have dropped it, rather than the producers of single-use plastics who are actually responsible for it. After all, if the plastic wasn't wrapping the crisps/water/Haribo there'd be nothing to pick up.
