Another 60 bags filled by local volunteers in Guiseley last week - much detritus being located on the outer country roads, having been flung from vehicle windows. #controlwhatyoucan
To begin, pick a time and place you want to clean. You do not need to seek sponsorship from the city, but if you need any resources or support, feel free to contact them. Consult our Events Calendar for any local events already scheduled in your area.
It's more enjoyable to pick with others! Spread the word by sharing your picking plans on social media. Reach out to local environmental groups to invite them to participate with you.
Stay safe by wearing fluorescent safety gear available at your local hardware store. Get your hands on our LitterPic branded fluorescent t-shirts and safety vests by donating to support the LitterPic initiative. Contact us via email to learn more about how you can score some branded merchandise.
Please take a picture before you start and then another after you finish, and post them on this site to share your efforts and inspire others to join the fight for a healthier, cleaner planet.
UK could learn a lot from other 'clean' European countries like Austria & Germany.
The prevention is key - but it won't happen until you get cultural change, lead by governments, councils, authorities & the media. Suspect cultural change can take generations!
UK government (currently the worst in my lifetime) show little interest in tackling the problem.
I don't think British drivers have the filthiest flinging habits. I recently drove through Massachusetts to take my kids to a water park to have some fun, and you wouldn't believe the amount of litter on the side of the road! The entire trip there I was thinking of ideas of what we can do to change habits and what solutions we can implement to not only pick up the litter but prevent it from hitting the side of the road in the first place.
