We’re Pinching Ourselves!


We’ve hit some pretty big milestones in Picker Pals. 

1,289 classrooms

1,050 individual schools

30,123 children participating

60,000 Picker Pals books delivered

75,000 family litter-picking adventures 

The great news is that 150 tonnes of litter will get picked by all the Picker Pals this year. That is the equivalent of picking up 38 elephants. That is a lot of litter!

Now, it’s time to support our Picker Pals everywhere as together we do something to be really proud of in the coming months. We will tackle litter and littering and celebrate every family’s action in creating great moments as they make their neighbourhoods cleaner and safer places for children to grow up in.

From all of us on the Picker Pals Team to every child, teacher, parent, sibling and supporter of our programme, a HUGE THANK YOU and a very happy holidays. 

Make the world better. Have fun doing it.
