Solent Plastic Pollution Hub
The Environment Agency and independent coastal partnership, the Solent Forum, have launched an information hub for litter pickers. This web-based resource features guidance for new and existing groups, including:
- group links
- information on borrowing equipment
- litter recycling and disposal
- local initiatives
Litter pickers can also join a Facebook page featuring news and local events.
“By gathering and recording river catchment data, Interreg partners can create catchment-wide risk maps which identify plastic pollution hotspots. The results will help us to focus our prevention efforts, and hopefully encourage people to change their behaviours by following our waste hierarchy – avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle – to help our planet thrive.” – Environment Agency project lead Lizzie Lewis
