Harbour Clean-Up by PGRC Eco-Warriors


Poole Gig Rowing Club has started a brand new initiative for 2018, which will keep rowers fit and help the environment.

Clearing plastics from our oceans and beaches has repeatedly hit the front pages throughout 2017, with many campaigns and initiatives being run across the country.

As we start a new year on the water, Poole Gig Rowing Club aim to make all social rows in Poole harbour a little more environmentally friendly with their ‘Eco Warriors’. They will be carrying a bin liner and cutting equipment in the gigs, and with the help of the crews they hope to collect as much debris as possible from Poole harbour. They will also be dragging a net behind the gig to collect debris, which will also provide resistance training at the same time. The first row of 2018 collected a substantial amount of waste, which will be continued throughout the year.

Lets make our harbour, oceans and beaches a cleaner, safer place to be around.
