neubau Eyewear See and Do Good with Plastic Patrol
On a bright morning in East London, the neubau eyewear team headed down to the river bank at Hackney Wick to join Plastic Patrol for a river clean up.

We were delighted to be joined by partners from Ivan R Cammack Optometrists, Coleman Opticians and Perfect Vision Opticians, as we set out to retrieve a large amount of rubbish, which included cans, plastic bottles, glass and even a cycling helmet. 

Plastic Patrol is a global movement, created by environmentalist and adventurer Lizzie Carr, to rid the waterways of plastic pollution, intercepting it before it reaches the oceans. Over the past three years Plastic Patrol has hosted clean ups across the UK and the world, removing more than 230 tonne bags of plastic litter, and logging over 175,000 examples of pollution in the Plastic Patrol app across 60+ countries worldwide

As part of the neubau See and Do Good motto, armed with our paddles, buckets and lots of enthusiasm, the neubau team set about clearing the stretch of river near the London Olympic Park of plastic, junk and other litter. At the end of the clean up, we logged our rubbish collections on the Plastic Patrol app – important data, which is then used by Plastic Patrol to flag pollution hotspots with local government authorities.

After a busy morning out on the water, the team headed to Grow restaurant, in Hackney. Grow is an independent and self-organised eco-system of studios and a creative space with bars and a kitchen created out of an old sausage factory by the River Lea in Hackney Wick. It is run as an experiment in ethical and sustainable business and operates using eco-electricty; eco cleaning and recycled products. We enjoyed a delicious vegan lunch whilst learning a little more about the latest brand developments from Daniela Schoeppl, from the neubau HQ team in Linz.
