People power and data collection. 493075 pieces of litter so far! Join us!

The planet needs us more now that ever before

During the coronavirus pandemic we have been unable to run our ‘normal’ clean ups. But the problem of litter and unsustainable use of resources has not gone away. In fact, it is increasing. By 2030 the amount of plastic waste entering oceans is predicted to double to 16 million tonnes and without clean up activity litter levels are increasing. 

Over 10 weeks in June, July and August, our favourite fitness and wellbeing instructors will be leading home workouts – yoga, pilates, HIIT, breath work – on Instagram Live every week for you to join. We’ll then all head outside near our homes to litter pick and track the brands we find in our app.

Far more than litter picking

This is far more than just doing a work out and litter picking near home. You’ll be joining thousands of people from all over the world helping to build the largest and most influential dataset about litter polluting the environment. Data collected is being used to drive positive and impactful changes by industry and governments. 

Only 9% of you want to go back to ‘normal’ after the coronavirus pandemic. We’re all increasingly aware that the health of the planet and people are inseparable. Together we have the chance to shape a ‘new normal’ that works for people and planet.
