How do we solve the problem of littering?

By changing attitudes, building communities & kicking butts...

 

 

One step at a time…

We find ourselves living in an increasingly materialistic world. A world that revolves around ‘things’ rather than ‘experiences’. A world that values convenience over conservation.  We are on a mission to change that, one Rubbish Walk at a time.

Getting outside and experiencing the world first hand has tremendous health and well-being benefits. It’s great for your body and your mind.

But there is a problem. We’re gradually choking the planet with our waste.

The idea behind Rubbish Walks is simple…

Go for a walk and pick up a bit of litter along the way. That’s it. Simple right?

Well, it can be. If all you do is go for a walk, pick up a few bits of litter along the way and dispose of it properly then you are making a little bit of a difference to your health and your local environment. But it can be more than that. Much more.

KICKING BUTTS

Cigarette butts are the most common form of litter on the planet. You are never more than a few paces away from a handful of discarded butts.

Trillions are dropped every single year in our cities, towns, villages and countryside. Wherever you find people you will find cigarette butts. Lots of them.

They are one of the biggest littering problems facing the planet today.

That’s why Rubbish Walks has chosen cigarette litter as one of our top priorities.

Number of cigarette butts collected so far…

651,323
