Hubbub is an environmental charity with an ambition to engage a mainstream audience on sustainability issues. We have been established for two years during which time we have worked with some of the UK’s largest companies such as IKEA, Sainsbury’s and Unilever, creating and running their environmental campaigns.

Neat Streets is Hubbub’s anti-litter campaign which uses best thinking on behaviour change. It was piloted in London and demonstrated to reduce littering by 26%, reaching over 8.5 million people in the media. In 2016, we rolled out Neat Streets in Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and the Forest of Dean, and launched the world’s first voting ashtray, the Ballot Bin. More recently, Hubbub has started to tackle new areas relating to litter such as coffee cup recycling and marine litter. Hubbub has already won five prestigious awards for our work on litter.
