About the event

About the Event

Join Plastic-Free Hackney for our Monthly Pollution Pick on Sunday 26 September.

From 10am (with staggered starts) Princess of Wales pub car park E5 9RB

Our pollution picks are planned to be Covid Safe events - with groups limited to 6 people,  physical distancing and staggered time starts.

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.

As ever, please come dressed in robust outdoor clothes with appropriate footwear (no open toed shoes).  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 note that it will be compulsory to book an Eventbrite ticket in advance of coming to the event.

On the eventbrite page  we've set out how we will be running the pollution pick. Please do read through the outline on the Eventbrite page it since things will be different to how we've run them pre-covid.

Tickets are 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.

Thank you, you wonderful volunteer warriors, for caring, sharing your time and just being generally great.
