The Great British Spring Clean is calling on #LitterHeroes across the country to help improve the environment on their doorstep. Organised by Keep Britain Tidy, the Great British Spring Clean aims to inspire 500,000 people to join forces – in partnership with community organisations, businesses and the government – to collect and safely dispose of single-use plastic from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible.
The Great British Spring Clean is taking place 22 March – 23 April and we’re incredibly proud to be headline sponsor. Taking part in the Great British Spring Clean couldn’t be simpler. Whether you want to organise a clean-up of your own, take part in a clean-up or simply pledge your support, we’re hoping you’ll join the cause to help clean up your local environment.
You can pledge your support by simply saying how many minutes you are going to give to the campaign. As the Keep Britain Tidy website states, “You could pick up litter while walking the dog or on the walk to school.” It really is up to you. Follow the links below to get involved:
Also, if you’re a local authority you can become a member of the Keep Britain Tidy network to help share best practice, build relationships and develop together for a bigger and better organisation.
We’ve put together some handy products to help you get stuck in. The bundle of products includes a hi-vis vest, litter picker, refuse sacks, heavy duty rubber gloves and hand sanitiser. You can find all the products here.
Kids can get involved too with the Great British School Clean. If your school signs up you can be in with the chance of winning £1,000 of wilko products for your school. The winning school will also have the chance to take part in a filming session with wilko. All you have to do is enter.
Last year an army of 370,000 volunteers helped clean up the country, collecting 630,000 bags of litter from our parks, beaches and streets. Be part of the pick this year and sign up to the UK’s biggest ever mass-action environmental campaign.
