Rallying to the litter-free cause

Logistics community supports national campaign.

Tomorrow, 22nd April and Earth Day sees the regions logistics industry come together to back Litter-Free Felixstowe (an active community interest group with nearly 1,000 members) in its support of the national Litter-Free Roads and Lay-bys UK initiative.

Goldstar Transport has been leading the march to encourage members of the logistics community to pledge their support. With efforts paying off, Maritime Transport, Macintyre, Port Express, Turners, Vartan, Fargo Systems, Peach PR, Porttalk, Seven Logistics and Pat Stockley photography have all pledged their support.

Steve Jones, general manager at Goldstar says: “It’s great that so many have rallied to the cause and are supporting National Litter-Free Roads and Lay-bys UK. In this age and with such focus on the environment, nobody should be littering our roads. By coming together, we can highlight the problem and reinforce our commitment to a national road network that isn’t blighted by litter.”

Debbie Bartlett, the founder of Litter-Free Felixstowe, concludes: “We are pleased to see the fantastic response of the haulage industry in support- it is so important to have a united approach together with the relevant local authorities. Earth Day is a great moment to launch this campaign together.”
