Empowering our communities to discover that each small action contributes to the bigger picture.
PicUp are a London based environmental community project committed to creating 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.
