Paws on Plastic membership soars

The Paws on Plastic campaign, the environmental charity that encourages dog walkers to pick up a couple of pieces of litter on every walk, has seen member numbers rise to 23,000.

The campaign was founded in Stonehaven, Scotland, in November 2018 by Primary School Teacher Marion Montgomery.

She said: “Picking up a few pieces of litter is such a simple but extremely satisfying thing to do when we’re out anyway walking our dogs. It’s fantastic for mental health – really empowering and satisfying to take a simple positive action that has an immediate and visible impact.”

The group has now spread to nearly 80 countries in six continents around the world.
