WHY?People say, Plastic Pollution is the next Climate Change.
I got worried about its scale since I began sailing, getting involved with plastic cleanups on the Thames foreshore in London and recently while visiting the sewers of London with Thames Water. With this project, I have checked first hand whats happening on the Thames and have reported back my findings and I could also generate awareness about plastic pollution and urge people to think twice before buying & throwing away that plastic.
