Great British Spring Clean 03 March 2017

Today, we launch our biggest ever litter campaign, the Great British Spring Clean.

There are over 2600 clean-up events taking place across the UK between the 3-5 March. If you haven’t already registered, it’s not too late.  Find an event near you and get involved.


The campaign is being supported by TV naturalist and writer Steve Backshall, the BAFTA Award-winning Deadly 60 presenter.

Watch Steve explain why he is backing the campaign and talk about the impact litter has on the environment.


Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “The Great British Spring Clean is about getting all those people who care about their environment to take action. We know that more than 50% of people are concerned about the appearance of their local area and so we want them to feel that they can do something about it and they are not alone in caring.

“If 500,000 people help us pick litter for just two hours each that means that our country will benefit from one million hours of clean-up care.”

If you have already registered to take part, why not upload a short video and let us know why you are supporting the campaign. Share on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram @keepbritaintidy #GBSpringClean

As a charity, Keep Britain Tidy depends on the support of its network of volunteers around the country. Through their hard-work and passion, we’ll make Britain a better place to live.
