Litter picking shouldn't be complicated. We want to make it as easy as possible for volunteers like ourselves to get equipment, get out and make a difference.
Due to this, we are putting all of our ideas on the back burner and prioritising events planning. I know I have massively missed group events and meeting people is one of the things I love about litter picking.
This will provide more opportunity for people to collect equipment off organisers, newbies to learn the ropes (the ropes are easy) and to meet more people.
Also, keep your eye out for meet ups (where litter picking is optional)
With regards to our 'area champions' idea, we are putting this on hold so that we are able to commit our limited time to creating and running the in person events, as that is where most change is made, but will continue to supply things where needed.
