Keep Swindon Tidy
Keep Swindon Tidy is an initiative to restore pride in our town, to keep it clean, looking good, and safe for human and animal residents. We don't just litter pick. We work to transform areas by gardening, painting murals, erecting sign etc. We engage and collaborate with local communities, organisations, businesses, parish councils and the borough council. We want to create healthy new norms and encourage people to think more about waste, pollution and the environment.
Why is our town so untidy? What are we doing about it? What are barriers to change?... We discuss such issues in an ongoing series of blogs on our work.
We regularly organise litter picks and have done so since Plastic Free Swindon's launch in 2018, working with various awesome local people and organisations. Read more.
Poster making collaboration
The Keep Swindon Tidy poster making collaboration is for kids and adults alike. It has some awesome entries! Some of these posters will be displayed on signposts around Swindon, as well as in our online gallery. Get involved and send us your designs!
Love where you live
In order to sort out litter / pollution, and clean up our town, we need to work together and all do our bit. Let's get our collective mojo working! Read more.
