A quick blog just because I don't know where else to store this idea. Lindsey and I met with Derek Hughes from Friends of the Avon New Cut (FrANC) on Thurs July 31st. The group is very active in getting people to engage in various ways around the river, and one of the things that they do and care deeply about is litter removal. They do regular litter picks, usually involving the same smallish group of people, but litter continues to be dumped on the river side and some of it is difficult to reach/remove. They would like to do more about it but feel constrained in various ways. 

Later in browsing on Twitter I noticed Litterarti, a Bristol-based social collective that aims to engage communities with the guidance of artists, around, you guessed it, litter. To my knowledge they haven't done anything on litter as it relates to waterways specifically, so maybe there's an opportunity there to get them involved. 

Litter may not sound very glamorous but it's one of those things about humans that connects us, often via water, with other species and processes, for instance, the below video, which is truly stunning. Incredible footage and a heart-breaking phenomena.
