The only membership organisation dedicated to protecting and enhancing Lake District and Cumbrian landscapes
The Great Cumbrian Litter Pick: bringing Cumbrian communities together to clean up our glorious county on Friday 6th July.
Not a day goes by currently, without more news about the global, harmful effects of plastics and other discarded materials on our environment. There’s no doubt we need to make big changes to our throwaway culture.
Litter not only spoils how our beautiful Cumbrian landscapes look, it also creates toxins and pollutants that are harmful to the land and the wildlife and livestock that live here.
Carelessly chucked-away rubbish can clog and pollute our waterways, affect our soils and be incredibly harmful to creatures that unwittingly ingest it, or become tangled in our discarded debris.
