#LitterHeroes Ambassador Programme

Have you got what it takes to be a #LitterHeroes Ambassador? If so, join us! We should all care for our local environment but we know that some go above and beyond. Whilst juggling work, family and life, people are caring for the environment not just on their own doorstep but on their neighbours’ too.

We are looking for people, with infectious enthusiasm and a passion for action, to become a #LitterHeroes Ambassador in their local community, to help us shape the future of a litter-free UK.

Whether you can spare an hour a month or an hour a day, if you are passionate about the fight against litter, making a difference on your own doorstep and spreading the message further, this could be the opportunity for you!

You will need to enjoy getting outside and leading by example, encouraging others to love where they live and make tangible improvements to your neighbourhood.

Thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we will help you make a difference in your bit of the world and together we’ll clean up this country.
