Source to Sea week
As part of the week we were delighted to welcome and tour Hubbub’s ‘Poly Roger’ Plastic Fishing Punt along the Forth and Clyde canal. Supported by Scottish Canals, the 'Poly Roger' began its journey at the Falkirk Wheel, and travelled across central Scotland visiting Kirkintilloch, Furhill and Dalmuir.
During the week we took 85 ‘plastic fishers’ out on the punt. Together we pulled out over 52 large tubs of litter including nearly 700 plastic bottles. We also pulled out a range of strange items including fishing poles, ten footballs, an outdoor chair, one sports shoe, a traffic cone and a beautiful brass horse and cart.
Check out the images of our 'plastic fishers' aboard the Poly Roger below.
