Did you know that 80% of marine litter comes from land and further upstream? Join Heather from Keep Scotland Beautiful as we learn about their citizen science project ‘Upstream Battle’ which aims to tackle marine litter from its source. Discover how you can get involved to help prevent marine litter at its source along the River Clyde.
Help to tackle marine litter at its source with the Upstream Battle campaign from Keep Scotland Beautiful. These resources are designed to help you and your class, or your family, explore the impacts of litter and take actions to protect our waterways and oceans. You can use this guide to plan and carry out a survey of the litter along a waterway in your local area within the Clyde Valley and clean it up as you go. By taking part, not only are you helping to take care of your environment but the data you collect will help Keep Scotland Beautiful monitor litter patterns and will prevent the littler entering our oceans.
