The Great Bristol Spring Clean
Springing into action for 2023
Take the lead, book your litter picking kit for the Great Bristol Spring Clean 2023 and join hundreds of others on this years city-wide spring clean.
Last year we helped over 580 superb litter pickers join forces across the city. Not only did they meet some splendid people, they felt actively connected to nature and the ‘finds’ were sometimes quite peculiar.
To help get you pumped for this year’s Spring Clean, we spoke to some litter picking pros to find out why they think litter picking is so blooming marvellous.
