Million Mile Clean

Beaches. Streets. Rivers. Parks. Shoreline to mountaintop, and all the places in between. Wherever you live, our outdoor spaces need you. Be a part of the Million Mile Clean…

In 2021 we had an idea. What if we could rally 100,000 volunteers to each clean 10 miles of blue, green or city space each year? To get together and feel the benefits of community spirit, being outdoors and making a difference? To pick up the trash that covers our coastlines, canal paths, bridleways and city streets? Now the biggest initiative of its kind in the UK, the Million Mile Clean is an annual action bringing Ocean Activists together to tackle plastic pollution head on.

Closely tied to the UN Decade for Ocean Science, the Million Mile Clean will run every year until 2030, mobilising 1 million volunteers to clean over 10 million miles of UK landscape. 

Find out how to run or join a clean on our FAQs page. Whether you want to run a small private clean, or a big community clean, it’s easy to join in and open to everyone, wherever you live and however much you can do. 

Once you’ve registered your clean make sure to submit your results.

We’ll send you an email when your clean is over asking you to take part in our most successful citizen science project to date – the Brand Audit. Volunteers across the country are collecting vital evidence of the worst polluting companies during their Million Mile Cleans, allowing us to challenge Big Business and government legislation to do more to protect our wild spaces.

Ocean Activism from the beachfront to the front-bench.
