Photograph

All you need is your phone! Download Litterati and join our in-app challenge with the code PICUP-PPE. Find discarded gloves and masks in your area and photograph them with the app. If you feel comfortable, pick up and dispose of the items safely.

Donate

Head to our JustGiving page to donate. We’re aiming to raise £1 for each item of PPE litter we find. When we reach our target of £2500, we’ll donate it all to NHS Charities Together to help those fighting COVID-19 on the front line.

Pieces of Litter Collected!

...and where we're headed!

Once we have collected all the photos we’ll build a photomosaic.

About us

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.

 

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.

Our goals

Awareness

This is our environment. How we treat it as individuals affects us all. Awareness of our own actions is the first step in transforming those actions.

Community

Bringing people together around a common cause - the space we share as a community!

Education

Where it all begins. As well as awareness around litter, education on how litter can be avoided in the first place it vital.
