Have fun with paddle and pick
Welcome to our Environmental programme!
Active360 holds environmental ethos closely at heart. For years we have been observing increasing plastic pollution of rivers. Seeing it every day on our doorstep on the banks of the River Thames.
We are concerned about the growing amount of plastic waste in our waterways and the threat it poses to wildlife and to humans through entering the food chain.
Our aim is to increase environmental awareness through sharing our passion for nature and watersports.
We favour SUP brands taking sustainability seriously and trying to reduce their carbon footprint. We don’t buy cheap overpackaged kit. We invest in quality equipment that performs best and lasts years. We work with many organisations protecting waterways and we are involved in various environmental schemes and projects.
By introducing people to Stand Up Paddleboarding and making them fall in love with the sport and the river we can enthuse them with passion for protection of marine environments and the need for a greater change.
We arrange Paddle and Pick plastic clean ups so you can get out on water and see what’s happening first hand. It is often eye-opening to see what actually gets into our rivers and how it breaks down.
We give you an opportunity to spend a few hours clearing up plastic in the company of like-minded people who love nature and are concerned about environmental issues.
Paddle & Pick sessions are popular with individuals as well as many business organisations with environmental concerns.
They are fun sessions with a basic SUP lesson included and all equipment provided.
For more information about environmental issues and our offer check out our website www.padleandpick.com or call / email use to find out how you can get involved.

Paddle and Pick sessions
Every Paddle & Pick session is different. Durations can vary depending on the time of year and weather conditions. Focus is always the same – pick up as much litter as you can (mainly discarded plastic), experience wasteful consumerism first hand and learn about pollution and threats to marine environments. These are paid sessions as we don’t often get subsidies for our environmental work and we pay coaches, provide equipment and clean after. If sponsored sessions are available they will be advertised and open for bookings.
