Last week, the team at Sky and I swapped our shoes for some wadders to help the team at Thames21 clean up London's rivers.
As we walked up to the banks of the River Crane, it seemed like there wasn't much work to be done, but as we took a closer look what we found was unbelievable: plastic was in disguise.
Beneath the muddy surface, we found layers and layers of familiar brands, bin bags, traffic cones and even a safe! It goes to show that just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there.
12 people. 2 hours. 20 bags. What a day!
Thank you so much to Thames21 for all your work in protecting our waterways and the team at Sky Ocean Rescue for practicing what you preach and giving your employees who genuinely care about the issue, opportunities to make a difference.
