Kayaking – Clean UP!


I went kayaking this evening in Hertford, I took  a bin liner. I can get cross when I see a natural landscape and then find someone’s dumped picnic in front of me. It’s gross. I filled up as much as I could carry in the first hundred metres of the river.

I was really surprised by the items people leave behind. I typically see bottles and cans of energy drinks but I found a roll mat earlier.

I even discovered a handbag:

The Hertfordshire County Council are generally quite good with litter picking – and the navigational area around the barges is fairly pristine. I think the problem is that people just love to litter.

I will be paddling a Canadian canoe on Sunday and I expect I will pick up a bit more.
