Businesses are getting behind a new campaign to ensure visitors and tourists treat beautiful Argyll and Bute with care this summer.

The campaign by The GRAB Trust and Argyll and Bute Council with support from Keep Scotland Beautiful will provide information, advice and guidance to help minimise the effect of staycation tourism on littering.

Raising awareness with their customers, cafes, restaurants and takeaways will be placing stickers with the eye-catching Keep Scotland Beautiful designs on drinks cups, hot food takeaway and sandwich wrappers.

The small stickers are available from The GRAB Trust free of charge to any business that would like to join the campaign and encourage everyone to do their bit by disposing of litter responsibly during their summer staycation.

In addition to food packaging, the campaign message will be seen on till talkers, Argyll and Bute Council litter bins and on social media. Public access litter picking stations will be available at high footfall areas and litter picking equipment is being made freely available for organised groups to borrow at collection points hosted by Live Argyll.

The GRAB Trust is co-ordinating litter picks with community groups and will encourage communities to get involved.
