ADDICTED TO RIDE SINCE 81
– IN THE LOOP SINCE TODAY
Thankfully, one incredible Stand Up Paddleboarder – Lizzie Carr - is spearheading a global mission to rid the world of plastic pollution, by tackling it from its root - canals and rivers all over world – thereby intercepting it before it reaches the oceans. We are happy to cooperate with Planet Patrol on their SUP cleanups.
So far the cleanups mainly were happening within the UK, therefore we are more than stoked that Planet Patrol will launch in Germany as well now from August 19th in several spots and you are welcome to join!
The increase in the number of people collecting data on the Planet Patrol app shows a huge willingness from the general public to roll up their sleeves and to take action, but without improved waste management infrastructure and a standardised recycling system across the UK, the litter issue will never be resolved. Litter clean up already costs the taxpayer £660 million every year and, with the amount of plastic the UK throws away set to increase by over a million tonnes by 2030, we need to see some radical action. At Planet Patrol, we want to empower the general public through contributing to our database of vital evidence, with which we are able to hold businesses and government to account and find long term solutions to this crisis.”
