Why a Grand Welsh Pick?

The throwaway culture and lack of wild habitats for animals across the world have never been so serious as it is now! The plastic issues, especially with single use plastics, is one of the biggest environmental issues the modern world faces.

As landfills are getting increasingly full the overspill of plastic is seen everywhere in the natural world. We must act now!

So, one of the challenges we have set for a Grand Week in Wales 2022 is to collect 1000 bags of litter #GrandWelshPick

What is the Grand Welsh Pick challenge?

We are looking for your help to collect bags of litter across Wales and do your part in cleaning up the global mess. Bags must be bin bag size or larger.

Green Paw Project and One Global Ocean aim to run and connect litter picking groups around Wales to achieve our goal of picking and collecting 1000 bags of litter over the week from 22nd February.

We are encouraging children, groups, businesses, families, and individuals to be sponsored for your litter/plastic clean-up to raise money for the charities involved with A Grand Week in Wales.

The Grand Welsh Litter is a joint project where other organisations are involved from all over Wales. The two main partnering organisations are Green Paw Project and One Global Ocean.

Other affiliated organisations include:
