Da Voar Redd Up: Shetland's spring clean

Have you heard of Da Voar Redd Up?

Shetland's amazing community spring clean has been running for over 31 years. In that time, it has cleaned over 1,900 tonnes of bruck (that's litter, or rubbish, for those of you not from Shetland!) from Shetland's coastlines, beaches, roadsides and public spaces.

Da Voar Redd Up is one of the longest running and largest voluntary community clean ups in the UK - demonstrating Shetland's ongoing commitment to taking care of the environment. To date more than 100,000 volunteers have taken part.

This direct community action on the global epidemic of litter shows that anyone can make a difference and every piece collected matters. We hope you are inspired to start your own Redd Up!
