The Great British Spring Clean

The Great British Spring Clean is the nation's biggest mass-action environmental campaign.

In 2024, the campaign returns from 15 March to 31 March. 

Last year, incredible #LitterHeroes pledged to pick more than 400,000 bags of litter throughout the campaign period. 

Research revealed that more than 8.5 million adults in the UK have done litter-picking at least once in the past six months. That’s a million more people than watched the end of Happy Valley!  

Keep Britain Tidy believe everyone deserves to live in a community they can be proud but, sadly, less than half of UK adults (43%) currently agree that they feel proud of their community.  

The good news is that litter-picking is a simple action that anyone can do to make an immediate and visible difference to their area  – 85% of those who took part in last year’s Great British Spring Clean reported that taking part made them feel more pride in their local area. And 74% said it improved their mood too!
