Treasure Your River

About the campaign

Treasure Your River is preventing river litter across the UK. The rivers at the heart of our cities flow to the sea, and take with them all the littARRR that is swept, dropped and drained into it. Did you know 80% of the litter in the sea flows out from river systems?
 
We're a huge UK-wide collaboration of litter-busting organisations looking for shipmates, volunteers, and people from across the UK who treasure their river to get involved. We’re aiming to remove 95 tonnes of litter from our rivers and prevent a further 90 tonnes from entering them in the first place.
 
ARRR you ready to climb aboard and treasure a river near you?
