    It is estimated that 35.8 million plastic bottles are used and discarded in the UK each day, with only a little over half being recycled.

The aim is to collect as much debris as possible, with a special focus on plastic bottles.

    Although some Bracken is good it is a very dominant plant and, if not controlled, it will take over the landscape; suffocating many of our other wildflowers which are not as fast growing. Throughout Scilly's history Bracken has been used by locals in various ways; i.e animal bedding, fuel, packing materials, but as this now happens less and less the way that Bracken is managed also needs to change.
