Friends of the Earth helps people to see things differently. It's the first step on the road to change.

We know change is hard. But it's not impossible and over the years we've come up with an approach that works well:

·         We look for the best solution

·         Can we, or you, find a better way?

·         We back up ideas with facts and the latest science

·         We know people are not the problem - they're the way we'll find the solutions

·         We know working together makes us stronger

·         We are part of a family of local and international organisations

·         We work well with friendly politicians, business and other organisations. 

It's good to get involved in something that's positive rather than falling into the trap of thinking there's nothing you can do.

We know:

·         The Earth is our only home so wrecking it doesn't make sense.

·         The wellbeing of people and planet go hand in hand - this has always been the inspiration for our campaigns.

·         A beautiful world 
We depend on the planet, so let's keep it in good shape.

·         A good life
A healthy planet is one that works for people too.

·         A positive relationship with the environment 
Acting together for the planet and everyone who lives on it.

Clean up the world inspires & empowers communities, to clean up, fix up and conserve their environment! 

The campaign brings together businesses, community groups, schools, governments and individuals in a range of activities and programs that positively improve local environments.

Since the first Clean Up the World campaign in 1993 the improvements achieved due to the efforts of millions of concerned volunteers around the world have been astounding. Examples of community-led Clean Up the World activities include:

  • Recycling and resource recovery
  • Tree planting
  • Education campaigns
  • Water reuse and conservation
  • Competitions
  • Exhibitions
  • Fix up projects.

While participants are encouraged to hold environmental events on or around CUW Weekend (always the 3rd weekend in September), Clean Up the World is also designed to provide support to groups undertaking activities throughout the year.

Clean Up the World is associated with the Department of Public Information of the United Nations and is supported by, and collaborates with, a range of partner organisations in various countries.

Love Where You Live is a new campaign aiming to inspire everyone to think about their communities and take action to reduce litter in the locations where they live, the places they visit and the spaces that they use. It’s about everyone taking responsibility – individuals, local authorities, government and multi-national companies 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. No-one is excluded as we can all do something, whoever we are, to make where we live a better place. For more information visit the Love Where You Live website.
