PURE MILE COMPETITION

Entries are now open for the PURE Mile competition 2021. The Pure Mile is the perfect opportunity for communities and groups who want to make a positive contribution to their locality and environment and assists people in improving and enhancing the place they live or recreate in.  Special interest groups such as, walking groups, cycling groups, scout groups, businesses, and organisations, can adopt a mile, or miles of road, in the Wicklow/Dublin Uplands and help Pure to Clean Up The Uplands.
Pure provides all groups with Pure Mile signage, Pure Mile bags, gloves, litter pickers and Pure Mile high-vis vests, and we also remove all of the rubbish collected by the groups.  In Miles where very little physical management is required, groups can focus on local research, or, on initiatives to increase awareness and appreciation of the area to the wider community. 

Despite the Covid Pandemic this year hundreds of organised litter picks and clean-ups, with the removal of thousands of bags of rubbish from the environment took place (socially distanced of course!).  Without the dedicated, motivated, energetic, enthusiastic, and goodwill of the thousands of Pure Mile Volunteers, hundreds of tonnes of illegal dumping and litter would still be sitting on the landscape.
