Local Parks and green spaces have been utilised and valued by a huge number of people since the country locked down at the end of March.

Sadly, alongside this has come an substantial increase in anti-social behaviour from some members of the public and the volumes of litter and waste being left behind have exceeded anything parks have ever had to deal with, even at peak times.

Keep Britain Tidy have created a range of resources which include a FREE Digital Toolkit which can be downloaded here.

Also available are Social Media Assets which can be downloaded free of charge here for use on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Please tag @KeepBritainTidy and #LoveParks so that the usage and reach of the campaign across social media can be monitored.

The campaign has been funded as part of the government’s Coronavirus response and will be bolstered with additional campaign activity led by Defra over the summer both online and in locations near to beaches and national parks. This activity will further highlight the impacts of littering, including non-medical PPE litter, as well as unauthorised barbeques and campfires, and breaches of the countryside code.
