5 July, 2022 | Local action

I was invited to visit Old Palace Primary school to talk to children about recycling. The Year 2s told me that they were sad to see their parks littered with rubbish. And they were shocked to learn that Tower Hamlets only recycles 22% of our waste. I helped them think about what might help solve the problems of low recycling…   Read More >

Collecting laughing gas canisters

5 July, 2022 | Local action

Have you ever noticed those small silver laughing gas canisters on roads and pavements across Tower Hamlets? I got fed up of seeing them everywhere and started picking them up to tidy up our area.
