Keep Wales Tidy is much more than just a litter picking organisation. They focus on protecting our environment and preserving the natural landscape, and they support other initiatives, such as the Eco Schools initiative and the Green Flag Awards scheme. MMG has received fantastic support from them too.
This year they are one of the sponsors of the World Alternative Games in Llanwrtyd Wells (8th – 25th August) and they are holding their own event in these games, the Tidy Triathlon, on 22nd August. You can enter your own team (3-5 members) or just go and watch – details here.
In September they are organising a week- long, nationwide clean-up of littered black spots in Tidy Wales Week, 15 – 21 September. Last year over 2,000 people joined in, resulting over a thousand of bags of litter being recovered by volunteers. This year they are encouraging groups – neighbours, schools, local businesses – to sign up and join in.
