I hate litter. I don't understand why it is in so many places when there are bins in most public areas. The guilt of knowing what does happen to lots of wild animals when you carelessly drop litter is awful. Watching Blue Planet really exposed the dangers of plastic pollution and how much it is increasing over recent years. I have been litter picking in my local community, trying to prevent plastic pollution and whenever I'm out on a walk if I see litter...I try to pick it up. The great thing about having a dog is knowing your pockets are stuffed with poo bags. You don't even have to touch anything directly as you can pick it up with your bag and pop it in the bin when you next see one. It's not that hard.

"Litter blights our streets, parks and beaches and costs us millions of pounds to clear up every year. Keep Britain Tidy is here to inspire people to eliminate litter now and for future generations.”

I have been supporting our local community on their 'Litter Picking Days' and 'Rubbish Raids' to help stop litter and preserve our beautiful world for generations to come. 

I have our free re-usable litter bag and take it with me to collect any rubbish I see on my travels. If you would like more information then check out this site. You can also get your own free reusable litter bag from Trail Magazine so there is no excuse...GET PICKING!

Over the years I have supported many charities. I have ran a half marathon (it nearly killed me!) to raise money for Plastic Oceans UK, Tim is cycling 500km around Namibia to raise money for Transaid and we have both volunteered for the NHS Responders to support the fight against Coronavirus.

I try my best to give back where I can. Sometimes I take things for granted and it takes a reality check to make me think 'what can I offer?'
