We launched Plastic Free Swindon with a litter pick jointly organised with RSPCA North Wiltshire. Since then, it has gone on to become a regular event. Around once a month, we spend three hours cleaning around Pinehurst. And there is a lot to clean up. Much of the rubbish has been there for years due to the lack of degradation of materials such as plastic. With council funding being removed by central government, there are less funds allocated towards keeping our communities clean. So we are taking responsibility and encouraging others to do the same.
Looking after our environment is important for the well-being of animals and ourselves. RSPCA North Wiltshire understand this well from their work. SCAN are pleased to be working with the RSPCA towards common goals.
