Imagine if everyone in the world picked up one piece of litter.

That is the thinking behind World Clean-Up day, which happening on Saturday, September 15 - and a Royal Borough councillor is hoping that the people of Windsor will join him in making their contribution.

Cllr Ed Wilson, who represents Clewer South on the borough has invited the mayor, fellow councillors and residents to join him at the Sydney Camm Memorial in Barry Avenue, Windsor at 10.30am that day to help clean up the Thames riverbank.

It is quite an undertaking and anyone who would like to contribute to the much publicised world clean-up is invited to contact Cllr Wilson on World Clean Up Day is not new. It is a global social action programme that started in America aimed at combating the global solid waste problem, including the problem of marine debris. It is typically held over the course of a 24-hour period in September on an annual basis but this year's seem set to be the biggest ever.

Like Earth Day, World Cleanup Day is non-partisan, apolitical and is not affiliated with any national or global political party. Next week's event will start at 10am, spanning the world's time zones until concluding near the international date line in Hawaii.

It is hoped that as much as five per cent of the world's population will take part.
