Last year the World Cleanup Day attracted over 17 million people worldwide in over 150 countries. The 36-hour green wave of cleanups across the globe began in New Zealand and was travelling around the world before ending in Hawaii.
This year, the organisers hope that the event on 21st September will be even bigger. The aim of this global concerted effort is to raise awareness of the everyday rubbish damaging the planet. Voluntary sector organisations, private companies and individuals from across the UK come together to clean up the country, from litter and mismanaged waste from our beaches, rivers, and forests to our streets.
How to get involved
Anyone and everyone can organise their own cleanup or get involved in one already organised; and everyone can choose what, where and how much to pick up.
