Eco Litter Stations
Our Eco Litter Stations gently encourage people to be seen to do the right thing and take some time to care for their environment.
Litter is all around us, whether we actively look for it, or walk right past it, it is simply a problem that is mounting. Ignoring it won’t make it go away and the local authorities are under mounting budget issues that keeping all spaces clean, all of the time is simply an impossible task.
So, based on the success of our Eco Dog Station design, we have created a version for litter picking.
Together with behavioural designers at the organisation A Win-Win World, we have developed several targeted “nudges” for different types of places.
Eco Litter Stations with free biodegradable bags make it easier for people to pick up and allow you to actively communicate with your community.
According to a survey of our customers, on average it has become 60% cleaner around our stations. It’s just simple psychology – where it’s clean, keep it clean. If you make it easier for people to keep it clean, it will create a ripple effect and a positive change in attitude.
In 1950, the world’s population of 2.5 billion produced 1.5 million tons of plastic; in 2016, a global population of more than 7 billion people produced over 320 million tons of plastic. This is set to double by 2034.
Crowdfunding an Eco Litter Station
Crowdfunding is a way of raising finance by asking a large number of people each for a small amount of money. Traditionally, financing a business, project or venture involved asking a few people for large sums of money.
