The reasons are varied, but it boils down to it never being acceptable to trash any environment:



  • litter picking improves both physical and mental health
  • litter picking brings communities together
  • it's easy for anyone of any age or ability to get involved
  • people care about the damage litter causes to wildlife and our planet
  • people want to show that they are proud of their local neighbourhood / area
  • people care about communal spaces and want to take responsibility for looking after them
  • there’s a real sense of achievement and buzz from the before and after scenarios
  • people litter-pick because they like to have fun in the great outdoors
  • The frequent ‘thank yous’ and appreciation from passers-by make it all worthwhile
