* This post is quite an old post, from the original Kids Against Plastic website. We’re keeping here for posterity 🙂 It’s been superseded by this post http://www.kidsagainstplastic.co.uk/do/pickup/ *
We’re aiming to pick up 100,000 plastic bottles, lids, cups, straws (and microplastics) from all around the globe – beaches, forests, road-sides, anywhere we find them. Why 100,000 – this is the number of sea mammals supposedly killed each year from being trapped in plastic or by eating it.
Along with others who wish to help us reach our total, and do their bit for the planet, we’re making progress – all of which is recorded below.[/vc_column_text]
