Newry BID encourages everyone to get involved in World Clean Up Day
One day. One planet. One goal. Millions of people in 150 countries uniting to clean up our world, in the biggest civic action in human history.
On September 15th, Newry Business Improvement District is encouraging everyone to get involved in World Clean Up Day. The movement now in its tenth year is a powerful wave of volunteers worldwide coming together to rid our planet of litter, with global clean ups happening on our beaches, rivers and streets and this year Newry will be involved.
Following on from their recent successful clean up along the canal and river banks, Newry BID will be organising groups for clean-ups across the city as part of the day, Eamonn Connolly Newry BID manager commented, “One of Newry BID’s aims is to Improve how we look, World Clean Up Day is a fantastic opportunity for both our members and residents of Newry to unite and help battle the issue of litter and waste within the city centre, something we know that all parties are passionate about. By holding a clean up on this day, we hope not only to clean up our streets, but also raise awareness and implement lasting changes within Newry City Centre.”
Newry BID already have a number of their members signed up, including The Newry Reporter and Buttercrane and encouraging more businesses and residents alike to register to be involved. The clean up’s will be taking place between 1pm-4pm on Saturday 15th September at numerous locations across the city centre. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
