About Plastic Fishing

While ocean plastic is high on the public agenda, there is little awareness of how our individual actions contribute to the plastic waste choking our local rivers and canals. Hubbub Enterprise’s Plastic Fishing campaign tackles this problem by taking schools and businesses out on boats to clear plastic waste from waterways. The plastic is recycled into boats that are used for more plastic fishing trips, with two recycled plastic boats already in action and a third underway. Barley partners with Hubbub to generate media coverage to raise awareness of the problems caused by litter and the importance of recycling.
