The canals and rivers of England and Wales could be plastic-free in a year if every visitor picked up one piece of litter, a charity says.
The Canal and River Trust said 14 million items of plastic ended up in waterways each year.
The charity said it was “on a mission to eradicate plastic” and urged people to pick up any rubbish they find.
It added that canals and rivers acted as “plastic highways”, which was a “huge problem for wildlife”.
