Trail (UK) - - BASE CAMP -

With un­prece­dented ex­po­sure, this year lit­ter and plas­tic aware­ness reached a new peak. And Septem­ber 15 saw the big­gest lit­ter-pick­ing event in his­tory: World Cleanup Day. The lat­est fig­ures aren’t in yet but the in­fo­graphic here shows just how in­volved the world is get­ting in the fight against lit­ter – 13 mil­lion peo­ple in an in­cred­i­ble 155 coun­tries took part in lo­cal lit­ter-pick­ing events to get us closer to a waste-free world. But don’t stop! Join Trail and the Outdoors Guide’s cam­paign to get our lit­tle coun­try look­ing sparkling… and don’t for­get your free bag to get your­self started.

Why the moun­tains need our help!

Lit­ter picks in the hills aren’t as easy (or com­mon) as lit­ter picks at lower lev­els. At higher al­ti­tudes even com­postable rub­bish takes even longer to de­com­pose, so we need your help to change at­ti­tudes and un­der­take the self­less act of clean­ing up other peo­ple’s lit­ter. Our cam­paign – in as­so­ci­a­tion with Ju­lia Brad­bury’s The Out­door Guide, Keep Bri­tain Tidy and a host of saintly spon­sors – is aim­ing to change that. Find out how to claim your FREE bag be­low... these guys are do­ing it!
