Here we go…. 2024 clean up dates are live on the website!

This year we’re kicking things off for Earth Day from 20th April. The theme for this year is ‘Planet vs Plastics’, which couldn’t be more perfect to start a new season of taking action.

Choose from water sports like paddleboarding or kayaking, or if you fancy a slower pace grab a spot at one of our walking litter picks instead. Every piece of litter we find is removed from nature and recorded in the Planet Patrol app to gather vital evdience.

All our public events are free to participate in, that’s right FREE. Everyone is welcome, no experience is necessary and we provide all the kit! All you need to do is turn up and get stuck in.

Head over to our website to reserve a spot while you can. Keep your eyes peeled, more events are added all the time with new locations too.
