Helping Hand Environmental

Helping Hand Environmental are the UK's Number 1 Litter picker manufacturers and distributors, they have been producing the litter picker that we all know and love since 1965. They work with all groups and individuals, from community groups to schools, charities to landscape companies and housing associations to keep the environment clean, green and tidy.

Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful have been using their products for over 10 years and we have our very own bespoke litter pickers which are FREE to borrow for one off clean ups and adopt under our Adopt A Spot Scheme!

However, if you are a school or community group who needs a few extra hands, buying your very own litter pickers and kit from Helping Hand Environmental might just be the support that your group needs!
