As part of the Prevent Plastic Pollution project we are running coastal litter picks every Friday in 2022.

Join us at these one hour events to help clean up Plymouth’s Waterfront and become part of an international citizen science research project. We are committed to reducing avoidable plastics in Plymouth, and will use the litter picks to encourage more people to take part in the Prevent Plastic Pollution Ocean outreach programme. These litter picks will be led by our staff and open to all members of the public!

All equipment will be provided, just bring some enthusiasm! We look forward to seeing you!
