Paws on Plastic

Smiley Team

9 months ago
Marion Montgomery launched Paws on Plastic in an effort to tackle the increasing amount of plastic pollution that blights coastal towns.

Her campaign encourages dog walkers to pick up at least two items of rubbish every time they take their dog out for a walk, using a spare poo bag or carrier bag.

The Gourdon Primary School teacher came up with the idea after numerous walks with her dog Murphy, who died in 2015.

He would often come across waste items and bring them to her, leaving Ms Montgomery with the choice of leaving the rubbish behind or disposing of it properly.
