Free Greggs treats for our Spring Clean participants

We have teamed up with Greggs to encourage everyone to help remove litter from across the country. Like last year, Greggs will be providing free treats to all those participating.

We are calling all residents across Scotland to roll up their sleeves this April and May to help remove litter from their local area before it goes on to pollute Scotland’s rivers, seas and oceans.

Families across the country are trying to cut down on their plastic consumption to reduce the damage it causes to marine life. However, with 80% of marine litter coming from the land, we are calling for volunteers from across the country to take part in the Clean Up Scotland 2018 Spring Clean - where they can work together to help transform the areas that they live and reduce the amount of litter that ends up in Scotland’s rivers, canals and lochs.  

Carole Noble, our Operations Director said: “Blue Planet helped to open people’s eyes to how destructive litter is once it reaches our seas, rivers and oceans. With litter and flytipping at its worst level in ten years, we are calling for individuals, community groups, businesses and schools across Scotland to help us to clean up as part of a national coordinated campaign.

“We're proud of all the hard work local people across Scotland put into keeping their local areas clean, and are extremely grateful to Greggs for supporting the clean up volunteers since 2008. With public interest so high in reducing waste and litter, we hope that this is reflected in the number of people volunteering to take part in our 2018 initiative.”

Roger Whiteside, Chief Executive at Greggs said: “Greggs is delighted to support the Clean Up Scotland Spring Clean again this year. As a responsible business, we are working hard to reduce our impact on the environment. We are committed to reducing the unacceptable social problem of litter in the local communities that we serve. This is a fantastic campaign that not only makes a difference to our local communities but also encourages them to work together.”

To register a 2018 event all people need to do is sign up. Registered Clean Up events taking place in April and May 2017 will be able to apply to receive free treats courtesy of Greggs, along with a clean up kit, including, Clean Up Scotland posters and stickers for children.
