Kenya's litter problem continues to grow because of our actions. ACT NOW TO STOP THIS!
We have created the following petition inviting individuals and organisations to sign it as a call for national action towards a cleaner Kenya. The Dream of a litter-free Kenya starts with your signature.
HERE IS WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
Every year, national and local authorities spend billions of shillings cleaning Kenyan cities, towns, rivers and lakes. While the duty to do so is enshrined in the basic concept that businesses and individuals pay taxes that mandate the authorities to ensure a safe and cleaner environment, ultimately this responsibility also lie with individuals, communities and organizations who form part of our country’s ecosystem.
A hygienic and beautiful environment can play an important role in the building of a nation. This is especially if individuals and communities make a particular effort to play their role in maintaining high quality local environments. Citizens can develop a sense of community pride in their efforts to clean their neighbourhoods and this can eventually become a metaphor for what we all can do in all things to Clean up Kenya - whether it is by denouncing simple anti-social habits of littering or major challenges that bedevil our nation.
Whether you are a Kenyan citizen or not, an organisation operating in Kenya or not, or even a government agency or environmentalist, you can help our work to empower the dream of a litter-free Kenya with your signature.
By signing this petition, you pledge to the high ideals of a cleaner Kenya by committing to FOUR simple principles;
- Not to litter,
- To dispose off waste legally,
- To promote and support public awareness for a cleaner Kenya, and
- To participate in and support any cleanup activities organized in our communities
