A grim green bath bomb dissolves in yellow water

Toxic Dips

Experience the unhealthy truth of the UK’s contaminated waterways from the comfort of your tub with a Toxic Dip bath bomb.

Fancy it? No, neither do we.

The Rivers Trust is taking to eBay to highlight the plight of UK rivers, selling Toxic Dips, the world’s most expensive bath bombs at £300,000 per set — just 0.005% of the estimated amount being invested to clean up rivers in the next five years.

Help us restore rivers by donating just £5, or the cost of a real bath bomb, to our work today.
