Save the earth one litter pick at a time.

Eco Communities ask you to act as part of ‘A Billion Acts of Green’ this Earth Day and become a volunteer

Today April 22nd it’s Earth Day, Earth Day started in 1970 and now has more than a billion people taking part to protect the planet from things like pollution and deforestation. By taking part in activities like picking up litter and planting trees, we’re making our world a happier, healthier place to live.

Better yet, an action that affects the world around you. A Billion Acts of Green are happening across the planet. From students in classrooms to organizers in their communities to officials in government there are ways for anyone of any background to make a difference. Start small and go big — or start big and stay big. Either way, keep coming back, keep taking action and join the movement to change the world.

Eco Communities are celebrating earth day by launching its volunteering programme. LINK

Did you know that one of the most popular Acts Of Green is joining a clean-up. Eco Communities aims to make ‘Cheshire Green’ and ‘Keep Cheshire Clean’ but they can’t do this without you.

Helen Tandy, Director of Eco Communities said “It was fantastic to see lots of solo litter picking over lock down and the start-up of groups like Chester Wombles, which now has around just under a thousand members. But we are more about group litter picks, you can make a big difference to an area in a short space of time and get to chat with new people and make friends. This is why we applied for the councils Climate Emergency Fund to  create litter pick hubs. Places where you can get hold of equipment bought with our funding and encourage group picks. We are now calling on residents to get in touch to volunteer.
