About the Event
Plastic-Free Hackney are delighted to be running our Monthly Pollution Picks once again in 2022!
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 recommend that all volunteers wear face coverings and use the hand sanitiser supplied.
Public loos are not readily available. We advise that you 'go' before you arrive ; )
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. 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.
We know it seems like there are many hoops to jump through, but our canal is so in need of our attention and we are really grateful to you, wonderful volunteer warriors, for accepting these changes to our events.
**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.
