The Clean Parks for London campaign is led by Parks for London and supported by the Mayor of London and 19 other landowners including ten local councils.

Earlier this spring break, the campaign—using results from a recent Parks for London litter survey—made the public aware that the collection and disposal of litter and waste in London’s parks and green spaces cost local authorities an estimated £14.8 million a year.

This summer, the campaign asked park users to enjoy these shared spaces in a more sustainable and kinder way through a guide to having litter-free, sustainable, and safe picnics. Their ‘Picnic in, Pack it out’ guide shares tips on reducing food, packaging, and single-use plastic waste, and planning for waste by preventing accidental littering and taking rubbish home.
