Water Quality is
in crisis in the UK

Our freshwater environments are being destroyed by an avalanche of pollutants and we are urgently warning the Government to take transformative action to reverse the destruction before it is too late.

Not a single river in the UK is currently in an overall state of ‘good’ chemical health and only 16% achieve good ecological health – a figure that has remained unchanged since 2016.

Join our global movement. Our mission is simple: clean up our planet.

How do we do this? 

  • Planet Patrol combines activities, like paddle boarding, yoga, running, fitness, with litter picking and data collection.
  • Our free app helps volunteers gather photographic evidence of brands, types and locations of litter polluting nature globally.

How does the database help?

  • Logs what’s thrown away and where to help develop targeted solutions
  • Helps identify the polluters to hold accountable
  • Shape government policies to eliminate single use materials
