Plastic Paddlers

The problem,

Heavy rain and flooding tends to wash bottles and other plastic waste into the river and from here it then washes down stream and into the ocean adding to the worlds plastic pollution problem.  


What can Hire a Canoe do about that?

Without you... Nothing. We are offering 8 spaces free of charge to come and paddle, collecting as much plastic waste as possible, When you return we will take the waste from you and recycle all recyclables.


When do we organise these events?

Before and after flooding and at the start and end of the main canoe season. For the next date please see to the right >>>

We will meet you at Montford Bridge at 9:45am and run through am intro to the day and the canoe.  At the end we will return you to your car.


We will provide all the needed equipment from gloves, litter pickers, bin bags and of course all canoeing equipment.


You do not need to be an experienced canoeist to attend and you can attend alone (we will mix you in with everyone else)
