We believe in a pretty simple idea: if people were encouraged to notice litter more so they can see the scale of the problem and if they heard about all the ways local people across Cornwall are trying to protect the places that matter to them from the damage of litter – then they’re much less likely to drop it.
Because of this, our campaigns seek to raise public awareness and concern about the damaging effects litter and other forms of waste can have on our county, and encourage people to think about the role they can play to help stop litter.
Make one change. When it becomes second nature, make another!
