PicUp are a London based environmental community project committed to created a culture where people take responsibility for litter. Through encouraging people to take small actions, our vision is a world where it is as rare to find a piece of litter on the ground as it is to find a £50 note.
In light of the recent Covid19 pandemic, we are facing a new form of litter. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is cropping up everywhere in our environment. We have launched a new challenge on Litterati to encourage people to document and (where safely possible) pick up items of PPE.
Our target is 2500 pictures and our goal is to donate £1 to the NHS for every photo submitted.
