Upstream Battle Giveaway
Did you know that 80% of marine litter comes from land? Upstream Battle is a marine litter campaign that focuses on changing littering behaviour to prevent marine litter at source along the River Tay and River Clyde. If we want to get rid of marine litter in our seas and oceans we need to understand how, where and what types of litter are getting into our local waterways.
You can help us!
This Spring we want to capture lots of information on the types and amount of litter that is getting into the River Tay and its local waterways. By completing a short litter survey on a 100m stretch of path or beach next to the waterway and uploading the results to our online portal, you will be entered into a prize draw to win a paddleboarding experience for 2 on the River Tay.
The competition opens for entries on 8 April and runs till 16 May. After this date all entries will be entered into a free prize draw. One winner will be chosen at random to win a voucher for 2 people (aged 8 and above) to go paddleboarding at Willowgate Activity Centre, Perth and one winner will be chosen at random to win a voucher for 2 people (aged 8 and above) to go paddleboarding at Wild Shore, Dundee.
To enter you must complete a litter survey on a 100m stretch of path or beach next to the River Tay or one of its tributary waterways, upload the results to the online portal and email firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your preference for the Perth or Dundee based prize.
The competition is not open to employees of Keep Scotland Beautiful. The winners will be notified by email.
Here is how you can enter the competition:
1. Register your details on the online portal
3. Choose where you will survey. You can plot 100m using Google Maps or perhaps you prefer to visualise (100m is equivalent to the length of approximately 20 saloon cars)
4. Carry out your litter survey
5. Upload your results to the online portal (N.B if you choose to survey using a phone or tablet your results are automatically uploaded)
