Keeping it Tidy


No one likes to see rubbish about the place and the Broken Windows theory suggests that it encourages the incidence of additional crime like stealing, further littering or conducting other acts of antisocial behavior. Litter is not only ugly it lasts for a long time and if it's not tidied away is a disaster for wildlife. If you are home owner we're sure you'll want to know that an untidy neighborhood just brings all the house prices down.

One piece of litter

One piece of litter

Yes we said 5, but even one piece would make a difference (go for five though).
2 minutes


What if I see more than 5 items?

Pick them up if you can!

Do I need one of those litter picking sticks?

Well if you have one you'll be safer because you won't be touching the litter and therefore won't be surprised by any sharp edges. If you are careful, use your judgement and only pick up the litter you think it's safe to do so you probably don't.

Beware of

Sharp things

Don't go picking up sharp things unless you are confident that you can do so without being injured. You re responsible for your own health and safety.
