People power and data collection. 421187 pieces of litter so far! Join us!

About Planet Patrol

Planet Patrol is redefining what can be achieved through collective action and people-powered data by placing power in the hands of the people to tackle environmental issues.

Over the last six years our volunteers around the world have been gathering almost half a million pieces of data that would otherwise be impossible to capture, building the biggest and most scientifically robust bank of evidence to drive lasting change from the top down and bottom up.

Together we are community activists. We are mental health advocates. We are innovators. We are system-changers.

Our why

  • 1.3 billion tonnes of plastics is projected to spill out into the environment in the next 20 years globally
  • Globally, land-origin plastic costs the economy up to $19 billion every year
  • More than two million pieces of litter are dropped every day in the UK each day, costing £663 million annually to clean up
  • 83% of tap water is contaminated with plastic fibres
  • Only 14% of England’s rivers meet ‘good’ environmental standards 
  • In 2019 dangerous pollutants in England’s rivers reached their highest levels since modern testing began. 

We are responsible. Single-use materials and other pollutants are entirely man-made – every piece you see littering our planet is a direct result of our own actions.

Our mission

We’re working to eliminate single use materials and litter, protecting our planet and wildlife for the future. 

We believe that by working together (that means you!) and collecting evidence on litter found polluting the environment we can make Governments change policies and hold brands to account to stop them producing single use items.

How we work to achieve change:

Changing behaviours

  • Raise public awareness and educate people about the harmful effects of waste and what we can all do about it
  • Build a diverse movement of #PlanetPatrollers, mobilising communities and bringing people together to take collective action through our clean up and community guardian programmes
  • Inspire people to consume less
  • Reconnect people with nature and show it’s value for mental and physical health
  • Provide people with a free app for data gathering to help scientific research into waste and litter
Causing industrial change
 
  • Conduct research that shines a light on the environmental impacts of products and provide insights to accelerate development of solutions
  • Influence and challenge brands and industry to change by providing evidence and consumer pressure
  • Create tools and resources to help businesses eliminate waste
  • Incentivise and promote transparency and accountability from production to ‘end-of-life’
  • Empower individuals to influence culture change in their companies around sustainability issues
 
Influencing Government
  • Gather evidence on litter to inform policy changes that incentivise a circular economy and reduce waste and hold Government to account
  • Advocate for policy changes and influence Government to play a more active role in better enforcing laws and regulating the industry.

How clean ups work

We organise clean ups all over the world to bring communities together, for people who want to do their bit and have a little adventure at the same time.  The clean ups can be inland or on our waterways. Every clean up, where litter is picked up, photographed and logged in the Planet Patrol app, helps our environment.

Sign up to join a clean up adventure we have listed or do your own independent litter pick

Collect litter together

Photograph and log your haul on the Planet Patrol app

Spread the word through social media and tag @onplanetpatrol & #PlanetPatrol to tell us what you’ve been up to!

About the Founder

In 2016 Lizzie Carr, aka Lizzie Outside, launched Planet Patrol after seeing how flooded our waterways are with plastic pollution.

She’s a born adventurer and has dedicated herself to exploring the UK by paddle board using her journey to highlight and educate on wider environmental issues affecting our land and waterways.

In May 2016 she became the first person in history to paddle board the entire length of Britain’s waterways, solo and unsupported. In 2017 she was the first woman to paddleboard solo across the English channel. In 2018 she was the first person to paddle board the entire length of the Hudson River in America. Each of these world firsts has a purpose: to use adventure as a way to raise awareness and highlight environmental issues globally

These achievements have earned Lizzie international recognition from both media and the general public. Lizzie has written for publications including The Telegraph, The Guardian and the United Nations and appeared BBC Politics Live, The One Show, CNN and other global networks as a recognised and trusted voice on environmental issues. 

In 2020 Lizzie was awarded the Prime Minister’s Point of Light and was awarded ‘Inspiration of the Year’ Award at the Stylist Magazine awards. She is also a LinkedIn Changemaker

In August 2020, Lizzie launched her much anticipated podcast, ‘Earthshakers’, that delves into the minds of people shaking up the planet. 

#PlanetPatrol began as a one woman mission on a paddle board and has grown into a global movement of like-minded people working together on land and water to protect the planet.

Liz Heard

Programmes Manager

Liz Heard, Programmes Manager

Liz joined the Planet Patrol team in 2018 and sits at the helm of delivering all Planet Patrol’s global campaigns. She is involved in everything from research and strategy development to managing our network of Reps and Community Guardians - and she’s always ready to roll up her sleeves and get litter picking! After studying biology at Oxford University, Liz was fortunate enough to travel to the tropics, conducting research in the African savanna and Indonesian rainforest. Despite the mosquitoes, scorpion stings, diet of rice and noodles, lack of electricity and running water, being immersed in and so close to nature was so invigorating and inspiring that it became her mission to make sure other people could connect with nature as she had and protect our green spaces - whether in cities or remote islands - for the future. After various jobs in environmental education, a marine wildlife guide, education tech and a brief stint in wine journalism, Liz volunteered with Planet Patrol throughout and joined the team full-time in 2018.
