Anti-litter campaign toolkit

21 Feb 23

Effective and accessible messaging plays a key role in engaging and motivating the public to change their behaviour.

Our research indicates that littering behaviour is affected by a number of factors including location, amenity, time of day, social situation, audience and perception of individual litter types.

As a result, a new litter toolkit of context-specific communication messages and materials has been developed.

This has been based on available evidence and consumer testing to see what resonates best with the relevant target audiences in different contexts to encourage behaviour change.

The different locations to which these materials apply include:

  • Beaches and riversides
  • Town centres
  • Residential areas
  • Transport hubs
  • Parks
  • Schools
  • Pubs and clubs
  • Sports facilities

The communication materials and messages have been created specifically to apply to each context. For this reason, there is no overarching branding or style in use. This allows for flexibility so that you can apply them to your own brands and styles.  In addition, all of the materials provide space for other partner logos to be incorporated.
