Litter Free Leeds is hoping to turn the city purple this weekend – with purple bags filled with litter, all picked up by volunteers wanting to make a difference in their community.
I wanted to join in so I got in touch with my local group, and a kind person dropped some bags off with me today and I hope to get out tomorrow to make a dent in the litter surrounding our local area.
Litter is detrimental, not just because it looks disgusting, but it spreads bacteria and other microorganisms, and is extremely harmful to wildlife and wildlife habitats.
If you want to join in, visit www.litterfreeleeds.co.uk or join the Facebook Group. I joined and was quickly put in touch with the group in my local area to find out how to get started.
Together communities can look after each other and help make the place look great and be safer again!
