Event Name: Walk for Waste Aid
Wear a green accessory on the day so we know that you're part of Team Unpackaged!
We will be entering a team, in collaboration with Zero Waste Life, to participate in the third annual “Walk for Waste“ event, a 25km walk across London to raise money for the charity WasteAid. Our team will be called ‘Zero Waste Life + Unpackaged’.
We will meet at 9.30am and congregate with the other walkers on Station Approach, near Putney Bridge Station. Then at 10:00am the walk will start and we will we will head east towards the City, zigzagging across the array of historic bridges, with a break for lunch in Vauxhall. The finish line is in Southwark just past Tower Bridge.
To indentify our team we are asking people to wear something green - a scarf, hat etc.
Everyone is welcome, and there is no obligation to complete the full 25km. Anyone preferring to do the 10km walk can join us at lunchtime.
