Clean-Up-Scotland-header-finalRecently we were invited through to Edinburgh to attend a reception at the Scottish Parliament to celebrate the achievements of the Clean Up Scotland campaign and the launch of the new #2MinuteCleanUp campaign a simple campaign to get more people actively picking up litter.

The Clean Up Scotland campaign has been running for two years and is managed by Keep Scotland Beautiful with support from the Scottish Government and Zero Waste Scotland and we were invited to the event for the work we had done (with the support of many local partners) on the Ditch the Dirt anti dog fouling campaign.

The star of the show was 8 year old Bronagh Dallas a pupil from Elgin Primary School who, after hearing about the damage litter does to wildlife, started picking litter up on her walk to and from school and the inspiration for the #2MinuteCleanUp campaign

Bronagh said “Every day on my walk to school I put on my rubber gloves and grab a big bag. Most days my bag is full by the time I get there. I have been disgusted by the amount of glass bottles, cans, plastic bags, cardboard and even used nappies.”

Thanks to the support from all our local partners on addressing all grime crime issues including litter, dog fouling, fly tipping and graffitti in our local area.
