Keep Swindon Tidy poster making

Can you design a poster to encourage us all to Keep Swindon Tidy?

Litter is a big problem in Swindon, as it is around the UK. It negatively impacts our physical and mental health and is hazardous to wildlife.

What can we do to reduce litter?

Signs are one way to reduce litter, helping create healthy new norms. Hence we decided to organise a poster making collaboration and have been working on it with local communities and parish councils. Some of the posters will be displayed on signposts in public areas. All of them are displayed in our gallery. Please, get involved in transforming our town!

Our first entry which has a silhoutte of a rat.  It reads, 'Think.  Bin it or I move in.'

Entries can address any aspects of litter, such as avoiding single use plastic, reusable masks, safety for wildlife, taking litter home, using bins... Entries could relate to the whole of Swindon or just to a particular area; for example: Keep our Town Centre tidy or Keep Haydon Wick tidy.

Co-operation makes it happen!

This isn't a competition, it’s about co-operation. All entries will be displayed with the name and age of the artist in our online gallery. Posters are available for residents, community groups and schools to download, print off and display, to encourage us all to help keep our neighbourhoods looking lovely.
