Join Thames21 and the #OneLess bottle campaign for the biggest ever counting project on the Thames.

Thames21 has been cleaning the Thames for twenty years and have noticed how the rapid rise in the use of drink bottles has been reflected in the river. Teaming up with #OneLess, they are going to count and remove all the bottles on the London foreshore. Last year, they visited eleven sites and retrieved 2,500 bottles - this year the ambition is to go a step further and visit every site where bottles accumulate.
