Community clean up challenge

This resource provides everything you need to conduct a litter pick. It is a great thing to do because…
A lot of the litter we see contains plastic, which won’t degrade, it just breaks up into smaller pieces, making it harder to remove.
Litter can easily reach rivers by being carried over land or through storm drains. Rivers carry litter to the ocean, so even litter dropped inland could reach the ocean and harm marine life. Wherever you carry out your litter pick you are helping prevent plastic accumulating in our oceans.
Taking part in litter picks or seeing the litter others pick up, can inspire people to change their behaviour to prevent litter entering the environment in the first place.
