Tak It Hame is the campaign that says what it means: encouraging the mountaineering community, and others, to remove litter and plastic from our hills and crags.
Tak It Hame aims to make a difference.
We encourage everyone taking to the hills and climbing the crags to do a little on every trip, individually, or as part of a group or club outing. And to show others too: tell the world that we can all do something. Many of us already do, but the litter still accumulates. We need more people to do the same.
The message is: can you bring back more than you took out?
So what can we, every one of us, do?
*Please donít pick up dog or human waste, broken glass or needles.
Want your club or group to get involved? You can either organise your own litter-picks or get involved in ones that are already organised.
Contact us to get some of our carbon-neutral, reusable and 100% recyclable #TakItHame bags for your litter pick and read below for guidance and how to carry out a risk assessment:
TakItHame bags are free to members of Mountaineering Scotland and affiliated clubs.
If you're not a member and would like some bags to use for a litter pick, we ask for a donation to cover the cost of the bags and the postage. Find out more here.
Once you've used your TakItHame bag, give it a quick clean out and put it back in your rucksack to reuse every time you're out on the hills.
When it comes to the end of it's life, it can be recycled at any large supermarket along with other types of carrier bags.
