Keep Knaresborough Beautiful is a new initiative by Knaresborough Online which has taken inspiration from the 2 Minute Foundation which was set up to encourage people to clean up the planet just 2 minutes at a time.
So, we would like to encourage all residents to take just 2 minutes collecting litter from the streets, parks, woods & countryside in our area. It really is so simple. Take a bag and a pair of gloves with you when you go shopping or on your daily dog walk and spend just 2 minutes picking up any litter you see on your journey. Discard of the litter in the nearest bin and that's it!
All we ask is that you take care when picking up your litter. Please avoid anything sharp like glass or medical sharps, dog poo, or dead birds etc. I would always advocate the use of gloves (I use disposable latex ones) when doing a litter pick up AND always wash your hands after you have finished.
Please share your photos of your litter picking on Instagram using the hashtag #2minutelitterpickknaresborough and #keepknaresboroughbeautiful to encourage others to do the same!
Let's work together to 'Keep Knaresborough Beautiful.'
