Fight rubbish with.... individual litter pick

Litterpicking is really rewarding - it helps the environment, improves our surroundings, lifts our mood and helps others. Providing you follow government guidelines, you can still litterpick on your own or with household members during daily exercise by joining the great trend of 'plogging'. Helping Hand have some great supplies to get you started.
