Want to change the world while you're at Uni or College?

We suggest starting with your bins!

If you and a group of friends are looking for a fundraising challenge that will help clean up the planet, protect its poorest people, and provide jobs in vulnerable, marginalised communities, you’re in the right place.

Idea #1
Litter picking

A sponsored waste walk or litter-pick is a fun way to serve your local community, care for creation and raise funds for a Bin Twin. Here are our top tips…

Idea #2
Spin for the Bin 

Set yourself an individual or group-wide sporty challenge of cycling for the planet…

Can you cycle 90 miles in a month and raise £90 to Twin two Bins? 

Set up a JustGiving page for you Spin for the Bin challenge and start fundraising.

Set up a team challenge…

Can you cycle 300 miles in a month? Set up a team challenge on Strava and get your friends, workplace and family involved to reach a higher target!

Idea #3
Plastic-free picnic

Choose a date and challenge everyone to bring along their own food and utensils that does NOT include any single-use plastics. Avoid cling film, plastic bags, plastic cutlery, plastic straws or disposable cups, no crisp packets or plastic sweet/chocolate wrappers. Here are some top tips on how to be plastic-free.

Idea #4
Set up shop

Sell, sell, sell all your unwanted books and clothes. Or, use your creative skills to make and trade. Grow plants, make key-rings, face masks, candles… be as creative as you can!

Idea #5
Brave the shave

Get buzzing to raise some cash. Film and post your head shave online for maximum support. Tag Bin Twinning on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and we’ll share your challenge!

Idea #6
Give up something 

What’s your guilty pleasure? Crisps, chocolate, Diet Coke or coffee? Give something up for a week and donate the money you save.
