World Cleanup Day is one of the biggest global movements of our time, uniting 157 countries across the world for a cleaner planet. World Cleanup Day started as a simple idea, a group of people, concerned about the amount of rubbish and waste in their community who decided to do something.
11 years later, the simple idea has grown into a global movement with millions of volunteers and charismatic leaders. The simple act of cleaning has become a force that binds together people and groups that would otherwise never dream of working towards the same goal.
Throughout the week E G Carter & Co Ltd have been playing their part and cleaning up a range of communities including Robinswood Park, Gloucester where new refurbishment works are taking place.
David Carter a Director of E G Carter & Co Ltd said, “It is vital to help support our local communities and it’s a small gesture to litter pick, but we are certainly trying to do our bit to help clean up the world.”
