THE GREAT PLASTIC PICK UP

Ten years ago, the Daily Mail launched a trail-blazing campaign to end the scourge of plastic bags clogging the oceans. Today, there has been a staggering 85 per cent reduction in the number of bags used in Britain, plus the manufacture of microbeads is banned, supermarkets are vowing to eliminate single-use packaging and plastic bottle cash-back schemes are being considered across the UK.

This year, the Mail’s stepping up its war on plastic with The Great Plastic Pick Up. We’ve joined forces with Keep Britain Tidy to encourage communities, schools, families and individuals to come together from May 11 to 13 to clear rubbish from our streets, beaches and beauty spots. Wherever you live, you can make a difference by sparing just a few hours to collect plastic, cans and general litter and dispose of it safely. Sign up today – there’s still time!

THE PRIZES

After your Pick Up, share a picture of your day and you could also be in with a chance of winning amazing prizes. Three lucky groups will be rewarded with a professional community make-over, worth £10,000, while a participating school will win an all-expenses-paid trip to a UK Sea Life Centre. 

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PICTURES

You can share your photos with us in three easy ways. We will be looking for photos which capture the importance and spirit of our campaign. We will review them all and reveal our winners early next week. Share your picture/s with a brief description of your event and its success including participants, your location and reasons for taking part, before midnight on Monday, May 14.
