There’s hardly any part of the world that isn’t affected by litter – on the ground and in lakes and seas. If we don’t do anything about it, our oceans could end up containing more plastic than fish by the year 2050! But you and other children around the world can make a difference and become the No Litter Generation. This global initiative is organized by the World’s Children’s Prize and Keep Sweden Tidy (Håll Sverige Rent).
On 16 May 2018 we celebrate No Litter Day. Clean up and spread the word about the importance of a cleaner, healthier environment for all children.
