Leithers Don’t Litter

As we start 2018, we like to reflect on our favourite moments of 2017. At Vegware we enjoy supporting important environmental issues, and that includes littering. Throughout 2018 we’re planning a number of anti-litter initiatives and campaigns, so here’s some inspiration from our home city of Edinburgh.

Leithers Don’t Litter are a group who love their local area, Leith, and hate seeing litter. They organise regular clean ups and collaborate with a number of organisations to help make Leith a litter free zone.

Litter pickers deserve a warm pick-me-up, and last year, our Community Fund donated coffee cups to Leithers Don’t Litter for their Earth Day clean up.

On Earth Day, around 60 people came along and collected 70 bags of rubbish. On Edinburgh’s Marine Esplanade they collected a staggering 4-5 tonnes of rubbish!

We have been really enthused by the proactive community work led by Leithers Don’t Litter. We’ll be looking out for their events starting in March 2018, as well as running our own litter pick as part of Keep Britain Tidy. Watch this space!
