Feock Eco go up the creek
On a sunny March Saturday members of Feock Eco, launching from Point and Devoran on kayaks and paddle boards, paddled up the creek towards the Norway Inn.
Where the creek begins to run parallel with the A39 we found a shocking amount of rubbish, mainly on the banks between the road and the creek.
What did we find? Masses of single use plastic food packaging, bottles, cans, hub caps, bits of flooring, domestic plastic items, pipe lagging etc etc. So clearly stuff is chucked out of car windows and bigger items are left there by cars pulling in to one very small pull in area.
It is now widely known that rubbish, particularly plastic rubbish can be deadly for birdlife, and in our beautiful creek we have a prolific array of birds including geese, egrets, herons, waders, swans, ducks, buzzards to name just a few. The rubbish is also bad news for the fish and all life in our waterways
Sadly, until people decide that it is cruel to dump their rubbish rather than take it home or to the dump, then we need to collect it.
