World Oceans Day 2014


In celebration of World Oceans Day 2014 we teamed up with Thames21 for the second consecutive year to host a beach clean on the River Thames foreshore. The day was a great success and we made a big positive impact on the landscape, helping to remove plastic litter and other debris that accumulates here before it reaches the ocean.
