We mobilise over 100,000 volunteers every year - cleaning up beaches, picking up litter, removing graffiti, planting trees and much more. We also work in schools teaching our kids to be tidy Kiwis and helping to protect our beautiful country for future generations. We can't do this without your support. As almost all our work is done by volunteers, your donation can achieve a huge amount.

Our campaigns ‘Be A Tidy Kiwi’ and ‘Do the Right Thing’ have been part of New Zealand culture for nearly 50 years. Our rainbow logo is as recognisably Kiwi as L&P and jandals, and still proudly worn on tee shirts today.
