27th-July-2020 - UPDATE on #BigCDFLitterPick - a HUGE thank you to everyone who got involved on Saturday!It's amazing to see so many people doing their bit for the community.
Littering remains a big problem in Cardiff, the litter pick really highlighted to us that more needs to be done.
Our city-wide #BigCDFLitterPick is on Saturday 25th July.
As lockdown eases and Cardiff Begins to open up once again, the city's streets and parks are looking a little worse for wear. A sharp rise in littering has been reported across Wales, which could have a devastating effect on health and wildlife.
Every piece of litter removed from our streets makes a difference and taking part is easy! To make sure the event is completely safe, we will not be meeting up in person. Instead, just grab a litter picker and take a small patch of your local neighbourhood for as little or as long as you like.
Afterwards, please tag any photos and videos on Cardiff Friends of the Earth social media using the hashtag #BigCDFLitterPick and let us know how many bags you have collected.
Our friends at Keep Cardiff Tidy recommend taking the bags of rubbish you find home to dispose of and recycle and we advise everyone to wear gloves, use a litter picker and never pick up litter with your bare hands! Key safety information can be found on Keep Cardiff Tidy. If you have a real passion for keeping Cardiff tidy, you can also sign up to become a litter champion.
We look forward to seeing all your photos and to cleaning up Cardiff together! #BigCDFLitterPick
