If we want to effectively tackle marine litter, we have to fully understand how, where and what types of litter are getting into our watercourses. By carrying out a clean up and survey along a stream, burn, river or canal near you, you'll be helping us build our understanding of the Clyde's litter problem.
There will be lots of ways to get involved with this part of Upstream Battle. There will be opportunities to do one off surveys, but we're also looking for dedicated "anchor groups" who can carry out a few clean ups and surveys over 2019.
The surveys will involve picking a 100m stretch alongside a watercourse, such as a riverside path or bank next to a stream, and tallying the amount and types of litter you find. It won't take too long and you can do it individually or as part of a group. You'll then send your findings to us so we can put together a comprehensive report on the state of litter in the River Clyde.
This is an ambitious part to the campaign and we can't do it without you. Thanks for taking an interest – we'll be in touch soon.
