I am Cycling ON the British Waterways collecting
After Biking 'ON' the mighty river Thames, unsupported on my handmade Bamboo Bike; I am cycling on the British Waterways collecting plastic litter to raise awareness about PLASTIC POLLUTION
#PLASTICFREETUESDAY #CITIZENSCIENCE #ONELESS
Make everyone aware about the dangers of plastic pollution and inspire them to take action
1. Water Bike
Cycle "On" waterways collecting plastic litter; which is a great conversation starter and visual display to share, talk and inspire action about plastic pollution. Join us on the water bike, canoes, kayaks or SUP boards
2. Citizen Science
Collect plastic litter, photograph, geo-tag them on a map & Publish findings
3. Community Engagement
Work with local communities, sports clubs, councils, business, festivals etc. to educate, motivate, consult and inspire them to take ownership of their local plastic foot print
WHY?Did you know that plastic is in the WATER we drink, in the FOOD we eat and in the AIR we breathe?.
The real danger are the microfibers and micoplastics that act as magnets and attract toxic pharmaceutical chemicals which they release inside marine life, possibly humans. We need to expose these dangers to our communities and make them aware about these dangers and inspire them to take action. I have a blog about the hidden plastic in our dinner
