Thames21 and the #OneLess bottle campaign will hold the biggest ever plastic bottle counting project on the Thames. Join the team to count and remove bottles across London’s foreshore and find out more about this problem.

Over the 20 years of cleaning the Thames, Thames 21 have seen the rapid rise in the use of drink bottles reflected in the river. Teaming up with #OneLess, come and count and remove all the bottles on the London foreshore. Last year's Big Bottle Count visited eleven sites and retrieved 4,500 bottles. This year we are going a step further and visit every site where we know bottles accumulate.

If you are interested in getting involved [javascript protected email address] providing your name and which part of the Thames between Kew Bridge and Erith Marshes you would like to take part in.
