Join the Great British Spring Clean 2023

Published on Wednesday, 1st March 2023

keep Britain tidy

Back for its eighth year, the Great British Spring Clean is the nation’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign.  

The Great British Spring Clean and Great Big School Clean 2023 will take place from 17 March to 2 April, and you can pledge to pick up a bag of litter – or more – from today.  

You can choose to pledge;  As an individual, As a group or As a school 

Last year, an army of amazing #LitterHeroes pledged to pick nearly half a million bags of litter. Can we count on you this spring, as we battle to clean up the places and spaces we love? 

This year we will be focusing on the pride our #LitterHeroes have for their local community. 

Our new research reveals 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!  

We 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!
