Community group ‘Sustainable Nantwich’ are participating in the ‘Million Mile Clean’ litter pick campaign with an event at Brookfield Park, Shrewbridge Road in Nantwich on Sunday 16th May 2021 (11am).
In response to the pandemic, Million Mile Clean was created in partnership with the charity ‘Surfers Against Sewage’.
The campaign aims to support 100,000 volunteers walking 10 miles in 2021 whilst cleaning the places they love, to protect the environment from the growing problem of plastic pollution.
Sustainable Nantwich is working to free Nantwich from single use plastic and engaging the community on environmental matters.
A representative from Sustainable Nantwich said: “Litter is a blight on our community. It is just the tip of iceberg of our titanic throw away consumerist culture. We are drowning the Earth and the seas in our own waste! It is truly disgusting. Come and join us in turning the tide on this tsunami of rubbish.”
