SUP excursion on the Seclin Canal with the EcosupExplorers

Around fifty plastic bottles, imposing pieces of polystyrene, a car bumper... 3 bags filled with around 130 liters of waste were collected in 3 hours on the - despite everything - very beautiful Seclin canal around Lille. Our co-founder Séverine was welcomed by the local EcosupExplorers crew. Covered with 80% of duckweed, plastic bottles are particularly visible and easy to collect...and they're terribly numerous. Considering the very important amount of waste observed and collected, we decided - in addition to our Plastic Origins surveys - to alert local authorities about the quality of the water and the large pieces observed.
