Love Where You Live

Love Where You Live (PA Copyright)What is it?

Love Where You Live is a new campaign to inspire everyone to take action to reduce litter in the locations where they live, the places they visit and the spaces they use. The campaign is led by Keep Britain Tidy, with support from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Love Where You Live is being funded by contributions from business and aims to bring together all sectors of society, business, local authorities, communities and civil society to tackle litter.

The campaign is about everyone taking responsibility for litter, and to change the way people think and act about littering. We all love something about where we live and this campaign is about everyone working together to make change happen. We can all do something, whoever we are, to make where we live a better place.

How can I get involved?

  • You can become part of the campaign today by pledging your support to Keep Britain Tidy and letting them know why your local area is important to you and what you can do to make it look better.
  • The campaign encourages people to take pride in their surroundings and you could start by keeping the area where you live free of litter. Why not get together with your neighbours and make a commitment to work together to make where you live a nicer environment?
  • Visit the Love Where You Live Facebook page and upload a picture of yourself holding up a sign saying why you Love Where You Live or follow the campaign on Twitter.
  • Keep Britain Tidy have more planned over the coming months, so keep in touch.
