Hi, my name’s Ralph. On Friday 15th January 2021 I set myself a goal to go out at least once a week in my local area to collect litter. In just five trips I’d already collected over 18kg of discarded waste. I’m enjoying doing my bit for a cleaner planet and I hope everyone will soon begin to notice the difference in the tidiness of our surroundings.
I’ll be keeping track of how much litter I pick and I’m raising money at the same time for a once-in-a-lifetime expedition to Borneo which I’ll be embarking on in 2022. On our expedition we’ll be living in very basic conditions, building schools and toilets for local communities in the Sabah region, and helping with important conservation projects to protect and support Borneo’s immense biodiversity.
My first litter pick on Friday 15th January 2021 – my haul was a whopping 5kg of rubbish and I’m motivated to keep going!
Saturday 23rd January – I went further afield to Nab Head, and stayed out for longer, but only found 70g of litter! That felt disheartening, but then I remembered that litter-free is good! And, there are still plenty of places in Bollington left for me to go.
My next ventures were on 24th, 26th and 28th picking a jaw-dropping 13kg of wrongly discarded waste!
Total to date on 07/02/21 is 28.05kg
