I have a lovely commute from Beckwithshaw to our office in Bramhope, with views right over the moors, really beautiful Countryside and wonderful drive to work, but felt really sad last week when on my commute I saw that someone had just thrown litter (bottles etc) probably out of a car window and left at the side of the road– why would someone be so thoughtless?
I was therefore pleased to read in the Daily Mail that they are teaming up for another year with the Great British Spring Clean, to safely bring communities together across the country to help clean the litter that blights our streets and countryside. The Great British Spring Clean takes place until June 13th. This is a national campaign to keep Britain tidy and is supported by a community of #litterheroes who are on a #millionMileMission to clear litter from our streets, parks and beaches. – they claim rightly so that, what is good for the environment is good for mental and physical health too.
In the past twelve months, our outdoor spaces and places have mattered to us more than ever before, this is a great initiative.
Anyone interested in taking part can simply go onto the Great British Spring Clean website and pledge how many hours and minutes of litter picking they pledge. You can pledge as an individual or as a group of up to 30 people.
