Join in The Big Paddle Cleanup this June . . .
Help us to protect the places we love to paddle from plastic pollution by taking part in a paddle cleanup.
In 2022, an amazing 1,200 paddlers took part in a bid to clear their local waterways of junk and plastic pollution, while raising more public awareness of the issue.
The response was incredible. About 700 huge sacks were filled containing 2,123 single-use plastic bottles, 1,476 cans, 831 glass bottles and 3,296 food wrappers.
This phenomenal achievement did not go unnoticed. British Canoeing and its community of paddlers were recognised at the inaugural BBC Sport Green Awards for our efforts.
