Litter Less is an international anti-litter campaign coordinated by Eco-Schools International and sponsored by Mars Wrigley. The campaign encourages students to tackle litter and waste issues in their school through regular monitoring, awareness raising and behaviour change. Schools apply each year to take part and successful schools receive financial support to go towards their Green-Schools actions. Applications are now closed, check back in September 2021 for further information.
