Litter-picking day at Royal Djurgården

Every day is litter-picking day here at Djurgården. But on 19th September 2020 we went one step further and organised a special litter-picking day! Many came and helped to pick up litter, and their reward was not only contributing to a clean and tidy Djurgården; they were also entered into our exciting prize draw! The prizes varied from tickets to Djurgården’s attractions to a fika at Rosendal’s Garden. The litter-picking day took place between 11:00 and 15:30. It was a part of Håll Sverige Rent (‘Keep Sweden Clean’)’s nationwide campaign, ‘Hela Sverige plockar skräp’ (‘All of Sweden picks up litter’).

About the litter-picking day and prize draw:

In 2020, there were even more people than usual escaping to Djurgården’s greenery. We believe that working together is the best way to keep Djurgården clean and tidy.
On Saturday 19th September between 11:00 and 15:30, we met at Djurgården’s various entrances, where we handed out litter-picking bags and collected in litter. Those who took part in the litter-picking day contributed to a cleaner Royal National City Park and a greener Djurgården. Plus, they had the chance to win one of many exciting prizes!

Everyone who took a photo of their litter/litter-picking bag and sent it into us was entered into a prize draw.
There were tickets to ABBA The Museum, Junibacken, Nordiska museet, the Museum of Spirits, Skansen, Skansen Aquarium and The Viking Museum up for grabs, as well as a fika at Rosendal’s Garden.

And the result…

The winners were notified by email. Djurgården’s video clips from the day gained over 10,800 views and 40 shares on Instagram. We registered 100 full bags of rubbish thanks to all the positive and committed members of our attractions and the general public who got involved. Also, we were actually ranked one of the highest amongst those organisations who participated! We are so grateful, proud and happy about this and can’t wait for the next litter-picking day at Djurgården!
