About Thames River Watch

Thames River Watch is contributing vital data to increase understanding of the plastic pollution epidemic and this data is supporting campaigns for change. The programme empowers individuals, community groups, primary and secondary schools and businesses to gather data about litter in the River Thames, driving reports about the issue of plastic packaging in the river. It is delivering real results, shown by the use of Thames River Watch data in a London Assembly report which recommended that the Mayor took action – which resulted in a new investment by the Mayor of London in drinking fountains.
