Litter-picking events

The Real Food Cafe Litterpicks

We started organising regular litter-picking events in 2021. Since then and over the course of 18 events, in excess of 3.5 tonnes (over 530 sacks) of litter has been collected by over 280 volunteers, aged from 1 to 81+.

The battle against litter is far from over and we need your help to keep our stunning Scottish landscape looking beautiful. 

Pick N Chips

Meet-Up, Clean-Up, Eat-Up

Get together with like-minded people for a curiously therapeutic outdoor activity that will help the environment and make you feel good.

Our litter-picking events are inclusive, and everyone is welcome to join. After picking we get together to share a delicious meal (fish & chips or equivalent) as a reward. This year, there will be a small (£5) contribution towards the meal (with a drink) to help cover our costs.

We require all volunteers to sign up.

2024 litterpicking season is here - sign up

Pick N Chips

Pick N Chips

Beyond Tyndrum

Pick N Chips is a joint community litter-picking campaign that aims to organise coordinated social litterpicks across Scotland.

The campaign is founded by The Real Food Cafe and supported by Coop Killin and the Scottish Police Muslim Association (SPMA).

The vision is to bring like-minded volunteers together to meet and work as a team and clean up their local community, then enjoy a meal and chat afterwards.

The campaign aims:

  • To clean up our local communities
  • Help protect our natural environment
  • Promote that message that littering is antisocial
  • Create welcoming events open to all which encourage mixing and socialisation
  • Raise awareness of the important role the Fish & Chip industry plays in local communities
We’d like the campaign to become nationwide - If you’d like to join, get in touch.

Good for the environment, your body & soul

Benefits of litter-picking

Litterpicking is curiously therapeutic outdoor activity with no screen time that will benefit our beautiful environment and wildlife.

It will make you feel good and help you create new relationships with like-minded people. It is also an excellent role modeling opportunity for kids.
