A Kings Langley resident, who set up a sustainable non-profit aiming to promote sustainability and fight against the climate crisis, has launched a new campaign.
Sarah Burgess set up Just1Bag2020 in a bid to encourage people to take up litter picking and protect the environment.
So far, more than 4,200 people from 45 different countries have joined in and collected more than 60,000 bags of litter.
Now, Sarah and the team are looking for 23 schools from around the world to organise litter picks and share them online to inspire others to make a change.
The project will have two stages, with schools signing up for one or both parts. Part one is a schoolwide litter pick, either all together or as a competition to see who can collect the most litter over a weekend or school half term. Part two will take place around National Clean Up Day in September, where schools will be invited to send in their stats, pictures, videos and stories to be shared with other participating schools.
The team would love to have a great showing of schools from Hertfordshire, so if any local schools would like to get involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.just1bag.us/23-schools-in-2023
