Message in a Bottle Source to Sea joined Westway Trust Communities1 week ago

On World Oceans Day 2017 Carlos and Carolyn became the first people in the world to paddle a marathon on a SUP made out of plastic bottles. They went on to complete 12 marathons (42km) in 12 countries in Europe, catching the eye of European media to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our waterways. The plastic bottle SUP creates a real impact and is a great tool to initiate a conversation about plastic pollution. This year Carlos and Carolyn will paddle 300km from the navigable source of the River Thames at Lechlade to the sea at Gravesend. They will paddle on two SUPs made out of recycled plastic bottles and will ask children to share their ‘Message in a Bottle’ in the form of Bottle Bunting, to deliver to parliament when they reach London. Along the route, they will talk to schools, MPs and local councilors to inspire behaviour change and encourage innovative solutions to the problem of plastic pollution.
