RSPCA North Wiltshire and Swindon Climate Action Network (SCAN) worked together to provide this event as part of the Plastic Free Swindon campaign. Plastic and other waste products pose a very real threat to wildlife, birds and other animals: https://swindonclimate.org/rspca_plastic_free/
So, we decided to do something positive about it. Helping to clean up Pinehurst, making it nicer and safer for animals and humans and caring for our environment. We will use some of the plastic collected in this event for art projects as part of Plastic Free Swindon.
There were a mix of people who work for RSPCA North Wiltshire and SCAN volunteers at the event so it was a good opportunity to find out about the work that goes on in Swindon.
This is one of several planned litter picks for Plastic Free Swindon. For more info on the campaign: https://swindonclimate.org/category/campaigns/plasticfreeswindon/
