About London Clean and Green
Thank you to the hundreds of Londoners that joined together on Earth Day, April 22nd to clean our community. Many will continue these efforts, by taking pride in their neighbourhoods and keep them safe for all to enjoy. Download the calendar of events for May below for other opportunities to get involved in the community, plant a tree, adopt a park and beautify the Forest City!

20 Minute London Makeover
Congratulations to Stallergenes Greer Canada and the London International Academy for winning the 12th Annual 20 Minute London (Business) Makeover Contest. These friends & colleagues will enjoy a pizza lunch courtesy of Joe Kool's. They posted their photo on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #20MinuteMakeover. It is amazing the difference that 20 minutes of litter pickup can make!

London Clean & Green - Background Information
London Clean & Green originated in 1996 as a single day event aimed at gathering volunteers to clean up the garbage and graffiti in London's downtown core. Over the years the event grew to include more and more volunteers, to cover a larger area, and involve a variety of organizations. London Clean & Green helps to coordinate the work of various organizations in cleaning up London parks, roadways, business sites, schoolyards, and the Thames River during the spring period.
London Clean & Green welcomes and appreciates the effort that any individual or organization would like to give to improve or preserve the environmental wellbeing of our community.
