Well, the Daily Mail is running its gbspringclean.org until 23 April 2019, giving people all over the UK (and further afield, heck, why not?) the chance to tidy the country up and get rid of a lot of rubbish.
So far, over 484,000 people have signed up and the hope is that this number will go to 500,000.
There are 3 ways you can help with the GB Spring Clean:
The GB Spring Clean is asking all volunteers to separate the litter you find into 3 bags: one for plastic bottles, one for aluminium cans and one for everything else. You need to count up and photograph the bags you collect before they go to the local authority for disposal and recycling.
You can share your photos online using the hashtag #GBSpringClean
Cleaning up the world will help keep wildlife safe from rubbish which could otherwise harm them. And it makes the world look a nicer place.
I always take a bag with me to pick up rubbish when I walk our dog; seeing litter on the ground makes me so cross that I can’t bear to leave it, and in any case, I really worry that wildlife may see it and think it’s food…
