We want to share the stories of frontline heroes and create their portraits using our photos of littered PPE. Do you know a health worker? Send us your nominations!
You can even help out by simply spreading the message. Check out our latest finds, share our posts with your friends, and use our hashtag #picupglobal
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.
