Are you smarter than an eco-conscious 10 year-old?

With Spring Clean Cymru just around the corner, we’ve teamed up with WalesOnline and two of our incredible Eco-Schools to raise awareness of litter issues.

We spoke to 40 pupils from Ysgol y Graig Primary School in Merthyr Tydfil and Cross Ash Primary School in Monmouthshire to see how much they knew about litter and caring for the environment. We covered everything from drinks bottles and nappies to banana skins and chewing gum!

Complete the quiz

Join us from 25 March to 10 April

The aim of the quiz is to inspire #LitterHeroes across Wales to join forces and collect as much litter as possible during Spring Clean Cymru 2022 (25 March to 10 April).

It’s simple to get involved, just head to the Spring Clean Cymru section of our website and fill out our short form. There are lots of resources to help you plan and promote your event. And, with our growing network of Caru Cymru Litter Picking Hubs, it’s never been easier to get hold of the right equipment.

Of course, litter picking benefits more than just the environment, it can also be a fun and rewarding activity for you, your family, friends or colleagues. Don’t just take our word for it – Jules O’Shea from Carmarthenshire regularly clean-up her local area with her family.

Litter picking as a family has shown our children the impact of things that are thrown away or discarded…Getting outside and doing something as positive has also been a massive help to our mental well-being, especially during these difficult times. Our 9-year-old Isaac loves the fact that we find some pretty amazing things while we’re cleaning up too.
