Milborne Port’s community tackles plastic pollution

Yesterday’s (Saturday 6 July, 2019) litter pick was a tremendous success for the community, with over ten bags of plastic waste and general litter removed from the streets of Milborne Port.

Every day eight million pieces of plastic find their way into our oceans and rivers, creating an ecological catastrophe that threatens wildlife along with the clean soil and water we all depend upon for survival.

While individual contributions may seem small in comparison to the scale of the problem, the fact that so many of us are now tackling plastic pollution is a real cause for hope.
