What is Unblocktober?

Unblocktober is a month long campaign that aims to raise awareness and combat all waste, whether household or liquid (Oil), that gets disposed of ultimately affecting the health of British drains, sewers, watercourses and seas.

Over the years, the British public has been disposing dangerous waste into their drains that is harming the environment and causing our drains and sewers to work less effectively as intended.

The product and consequence to disposing dangerous waste has led to the creation of 'fatbergs'. These are essentially huge masses of fat mixed with oil, grease, nappies etc. These 'fatbergs' clog up waterways and are both harmful to the environment and the animals that live in it.

How can you help?

Unblocktober is asking the people of Britain, for a whole month, to watch what kinds of waste you put down the drain, and into your toilets. Just doing that will make a big difference! Even better if you can do it for the whole year.
