We are thrilled to be involved in a new project in Ryde aimed at helping everyone be part of keeping the town’s streets, beaches and parks free of litter.
The new project, under the title ‘We Love Ryde’ Litter Lenders will enable local residents and visitors to borrow litter pickers from Ryde Library in a similar way that people borrow books. This means people will be able to get involved in tackling litter and plastic pollution whenever they have time. And it means groups can easily run their own event without having to buy new equipment.
At the same time a new #2minutebeachclean board is being installed on Appley Beach and a #2minutelitterpick board provided in Ryde Town Centre. The boards have everything needed for someone to do a quick two-minute litter pick including litter pickers and bags to put the rubbish in.
The project has been funded by donations from the Goodleaf Tree Climbing Vertical Marathon and Ryde Town Council, and is being overseen by Planet Aware with the support of Ryde Business Association and Ryde Library.
Residents and visitors alike are invited to take time to do a quick beach clean and share their photos using the hashtags; #LitterPickerLenders, #WeLoveRyde and #2MinuteBeachClean.
