Reduce Environmental Pollution! 10 days – 7 actions.
19-28 October 2021

Join a global effort to reduce environmental pollution through a ten day campaign, promoting sustainable behaviour change, by completing seven actions around the themes of litter and waste.

The international campaign will run between 19-28 October 2021.

There are 2 ways to get involved:

  • Download the Treasure Earth app where you will be presented with a challenge each day
  • or alternatively the challenges can be downloaded as a document to undertake at any time throughout the campaign.

The seven actions are short and easy to complete and can be adaptable to any context eg: as an individual, family, school, or youth group activity. The campaign is open to all young people – primary to tertiary age. Educator notes are provided for teachers wishing to lead a student group through the campaign.

At the end of the campaign, you will be invited to create a short video (max 1 minute) of a Zero Waste action and submit it to the #LitterLessCampaign Competition!

We’ll choose the best 3 New Zealand entries and submit them to the international competition where a prize will be awarded for each of the following age categories: 10 years and under, 11–16 years, 17–25 years.
