About the Event
Plastic-Free Hackney are delighted and relieved to be running our Monthly Pollution Picks again!
Plastic-Free Hackney Pollution Picks are designed to be Covid Safe - with groups limited to 6 people, physical distancing and staggered time starts.
As ever, please 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. We also request that all volunteers bring face coverings.
Public loos are not readily available. We advise that you 'go' before you arrive ;)
If you'd like to pick for the full 2 hours, make sure you book a ticket for the 10am slot!
Please book an Eventbrite ticket in advance of coming to the Pollution Pick. It's really helpful for us when managing numbers and equipment.
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'. We decided that the word 'litter' sounds too benign, and puts the onus on the people who have dropped it, rather than the producers of single-use plastics. After all, if the plastic wasn't wrapping the crisps/water/Haribo there'd be nothing to pick up.
