K9 Clean Up

Your K9 Nation needs you!

K9 Clean Up 2021 27th - 30th August!

Are you tired of seeing your favourite dog walking spots ruined by litter? We are too! Our initiative to clean up these areas began with #K9Cleanup, which saw the wonderful dog owner community head out and clean up litter on their walks.

K9 Clean Up 2021

Join us again, for the K9 Clean Up 2021 between 27th – 30th August!

After the success of the campaign last year, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to bring our community together once again! This year our community is even larger and so we can have an even greater impact!

There will be plenty more information to come before the Clean Up date! Enter your details to stay up to date with the Clean Up campaign!

What is the K9 Clean Up?

What is the
K9 Clean Up?

As part of the K9 Nation company values, we are keen to support community and environmental awareness campaigns making our world an overall better place to live.

Keeping our streets, parks and beaches clean is an on-going problem. Not only is it bad for the environment but it poses a major health risk for dogs both from an injury and illness perspective.

The K9 Nation Clean Up Campaign is aimed at not only helping to clean up our favourite recreational areas and outdoor locations, but it’s also to help and support the changing of the public and dog owner behaviours on matters related to littering, general hygiene and proper waste disposal management.

K9 Nation’s objective for this campaign is to see the dog owner community come together to make a difference, raise awareness of the environmental impact of littering and support the governmental agendas of cleaning up our streets from waste.

Say goodbye to plastic bags & keep the ocean smiling

Adios Plastic originally came about in 2017 as a reaction to the devastating effects that plastic was having on the environment.

Almost all dog poo bags on the market are not as eco friendly as they claim! Companies were, and still are greenwashing customers using clever marketing techniques.

“Adios Plastic is here to offer consumers plastic-free alternatives to everyday products. Our love of animals means that compostable poo bags is our launch product, but don’t worry we will have many more products to come!”

This year we are supporting Support Dogs

As part of our K9 Clean Up campaign, we are supporting the charity Support Dogs!

Support Dogs is a national assistance dog charity that for the past 30 years has been providing life-saving care and support to children and adults affected by some of the most challenging medical conditions.
 
 
The charity trains and provides specialist assistance dogs for children with autism and adults with epilepsy and disabilities such as MS and cerebral palsy, enabling them to lead safer, more independent lives. 1 in 4 of the dogs they train come to the charity from rescue centres or as unwanted pets.

What happened last year?

Between the 28th – 31st August 2020, our K9 Clean Up campaign launched and we saw dog owners head out to help clean up our beautiful country!

Over the August bank holiday weekend in 2020, our K9 Clean Up campaign started! We saw dog owners from across the UK take the opportunity on their daily walks to pick up rubbish and help keep our country clean.

We created the K9 Clean Up Kit to help support our dog owner community in their efforts. With the Clean Up Kit, we were also able to provide support for one of the UK’s biggest dog charities at a time when they were struggling more than ever. In total, as part of the K9 Clean Up campaign, we donated £1000 to Dogs Trust!
With our campaign through social media, we reached over 110,000 people, got over 50 businesses engaged and had almost 200 people taking part!
The #K9Cleanup hashtag was mentioned over 150 times on social media and we had lots of people sending us pictures of their walks! You can check out some of those above!
