"No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced.”

THE CLEAN PLANET PROGRAMME
Cleaning the planet one bottle at a time
Connected Planet was originally a community interest company named Plogolution, set up to bring communities together to make a difference by holding plogging events all across the country. Although we are now Connected Planet Foundation, we still hold Plogolution dear to our hearts and it continues to be one of several programmes we will be running.Plogging (running whilst picking up rubbish) is a great way to improve not only your own health but the health of the planet. Our events cater for everyone no matter your age, background, race or ability, and there will always be a walking and running group. So what are you waiting for? Get signed up to our next event, get fit, make friends, and make a difference!
SCHOOL LITTER PICKING CLUBS
EDUCATING AND EMPOWERING FUTURE GENERATIONS
At Connected Planet Foundation we firmly believe that education will change the world - that's why our Cleaner Planet Programme is so important to us.
We deliver a short assembly on the impact that plastic pollution and littering has on the environment, as well as encouraging children to reduce the amount of plastic they use. The aim is to then set up a litter picking club within the school. We provide all the equipment needed to get out and make our planet a better place and we will aim to join you for your first litter pick. Most of our schools head out on a weekly basis and the amount of rubbish they have collected from the environment is staggering.
Our school litter picking clubs make a huge different to the communities around their schools. Not only are these children heroes for our planet, but they are role models in their communities. Check out what they've picked up so far.
