14 million pieces of plastic rubbish end up in our canals and rivers each year. Around 500,000 pieces are carried into oceans, negatively impacting the environment on a global scale.
Wildlife is at risk of serious injury and suffocation. Vital waterside habitats are being damaged, leaving water voles, otters, and other endangered species exposed and vulnerable. Much-loved scenic city routes are being left tarnished.
