The projects undertaken by Clare County Council in 2015 had a broad reach and presented an opportunity to promote extensive engagement across many sectors to promote behavioural change including:
- the greening of festivals
- a reusable water bottle project
- workshops to raise awareness on resource efficiency & waste prevention.
Building on the popularity of running events a highly successful intervention with reusable drinks bottles was undertaken with two events in the county.
The county council worked with partners such as:
- Stop Food Waste Programme
- Inis Fest Organisers
- Doonbeg Tidy Towns
- Declan Hayes Memorial Run Organisers
The three workshops proved very effective and a large attendance was secured, including many from local community groups and Tidy Towns committees.
