And the total is …

Over three years and 20 clean ups, Off the Ground has found 4,016 plastic bottles. Many thanks to everyone who entered their best guess in the contest–check out our Facebook page for the winner. You can still get one of our new bottles–head on down to the Chippenham Carnival today (14th July) and see the Refill Chippenham stand for details.

What’s a bit scary about this number is that it is just three parks in Chippenham, not the town as a whole. If you want to get a feel for the amount of plastic bottles that are tossed aside as litter, keep your own tally: how many do you see in a week? Or a month? Bonus karma points if you pick them up and recycle them too!
