See our volunteers in action!
Our volunteers are seeding and weeding to make our communities cleaner and greener.
Getting Clean has been involved in various conservation efforts from wild flower meadows in South Leeds to habitat preservation in the Yorkshire Dales.
Conservation programmes give our volunteers a sense of purpose and environmentalism is core to the ethos of Getting Clean.
The soap we sell is made in regular workshops where our volunteers come together to make soap, gain skills and provide support to one another.
Making soap provides both a social and therapeutic experience for our volunteers. This is why our product really is “soap with hope”!
The more soap we sell, the more volunteers we can support.
Our plan is to sell more soap so that we can employ volunteers and pay them for their time and work.
Community clean-ups & repairs
Getting Clean volunteers have led numerous community clean up activities and residential repairs around West and South Leeds as well as the City Centre. We’ve filled countless purple bin bags provided by Leeds City Council and we recycle as much we can.
We treat litter picking as pleasure not punishment! We use the clean up events as an opportunity to give back to the community and support one another. We believe that cleaning our streets helps us to get clean and keep clean too!
