Boat launch highlighting the problem of plastic waste

Today sees the maiden voyage of a new vessel onto our waterways. The 12-seater punt made from 99% recycled plastic will be launched by the City Mayor of Salford, Paul Dennett, in Salford Quays.

From April to June the ‘Poly Roger’ boat will be on tour across the UK, taking people out on ‘plastic fishing’ trips to raise awareness of the growing levels of plastic pollution in our rivers and canals and to encourage more people to recycle their used plastic
