RENDALL & RITTNER JOIN LONDON’S ‘WAR ON PLASTIC’
Rendall & Rittner have joined charity Thames 21’s initiative to clean up London’s rivers. Two half-day litter picks have been scheduled at two locations in close proximity to Rendall & Rittner’s developments in Kidbrooke and Battersea.
At Rendall & Rittner we are constantly developing our sustainability activities to ensure that they reflect both the government and public's concerns. A large proportion of our managed properties in London either line the River Thames or are adjacent to waterways, with plastic pollution continuing to dominate news headlines across the globe, we are committed to assisting with the clean-up of London’s rivers and their foreshores.
To kick start this commitment we have partnered with the worlds first green electricity company, Ecotricity and charity Thames 21 to host two half-day litter picks near to our London developments in Kidbrooke and Battersea. Thames 21 work with communities to improve rivers and canals for people and wildlife. Each year they remove approximately 250 tonnes of rubbish from the River Thames foreshore and the tributaries that feed it.
The vast amounts and varieties of waste products that litter London’s waterways pose threats to the wildlife who live in, above and around them. Our employees will help to remove litter such as plastic bottles, which break up into small pieces and are then ingested by animals, can holders, which can become tangled around an animal, and plastic bags which are known to suffocate wildlife.
On Friday 12th July 20 of our staff will take part in a litter pick at Sutcliffe Park within our Kidbrooke village development, working on the non-tidal river to clear as much rubbish as possible. This will then be followed by a further 20 staff undertaking a litter pick on the Thames foreshore in the vicinity of our Battersea developments.
