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 Fri 26th & Sat 27th April 2019.
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.
We'd like to take this opportunity to say a big Thank You to the People's Postcode Lottery for supporting our 2018 litter pick event. Postcode Local Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Our Great Cumbrian Litter Pick campaign received £6165 from the Trust to help us manage and organise litter picks across our glorious county.
