Community group Plastic Free East Dulwich is asking everyone to help tackle the growing littering problem in Southwark’s parks with a two minute clean.
“We’ve all seen the disgusting amount of littering that has been happening during lockdown with litter in Southwark parks up 25-30% on comparable times from last year,” their latest E-newsletter explained.
“We are urging everyone to do a #2minuteclean when out and about and to encourage friends and neighbours to join you and do the same.
“Even if that means picking up three pieces of litter from your street, it all helps and the impact of your actions will go further if you talk to friends and neighbours and post about it on your social channels.”
They are also backing a petition for increased fines for littering signed by more than 10,000 people
