As a landlord with a lasting stake in the communities we build, Sovereign is supporting events across our localities as part of World Cleanup Day this Saturday (16 September) and inviting the community to take part.
By participating in World Cleanup Day, people can become part of a collective force actively addressing litter and waste. It’s a chance to roll up our sleeves, put on our gloves, and join hands in creating a cleaner, healthier planet for all.
There are locally-arranged activities across many of the areas where we have homes – including litter picking, waste removal, recycling promotion, stalls from sustainability companies, and much more.
Coordinated by Sovereign’s ‘Green Group’ which looks at how the organisation can support sustainability, alongside its Community Investment Team, the events with regional partners are sure to draw in members from the local community.
Commenting on the events, Sovereign’s Community Investment and Partnerships Manager Marta Rios said: “At Sovereign, we’re clear and passionate advocates of the environment. Through our Homes and Place Standard, we’re actively focusing on making all our homes and places sustainable, and supporting the people who live in them to take pride in where they live and drive lasting change.
“These events are just one of many things we’re doing to help others look after the planet. I’d encourage anyone who is local to go along, get involved and find out more about how they can support sustainability in their community – on World Cleanup Day and beyond.”
Hosted by the global organisation Let’s Do It! – World Cleanup Day is an annual global social action program aimed at combating the global solid waste problem, including the problem of marine debris. It brings together millions of volunteers from over 190 countries to clean up litter and debris from our streets, parks, beaches, and waterways.
Here are all the venues, times and contact details for activities on Saturday 16 September.
Litter pick on September 16th, 12-1pm, Merrivale Park Association, 37 Newman Road, Exeter, EX4 1PJ. Come along and get involved with a litter pick at a local park with more litter picks to come over the following months at Cowick Barton Playing Fields.
