Team members from both companies gathered to launch the partnership with a litter pick of the car park and surrounding areas to promote our roadside litter campaign week of action, which starts on 12 of May and runs until the 20 May.
As part of the Week of Action, Costa and McDonald’s will display campaign materials at a total of 27 drive-thru branches throughout Scotland – encouraging customers to get involved and to “give your litter a lift, take it home”.
McDonald’s Operations Consultant, Martin Lomax, who operates the restaurant at Cameron Toll said: “McDonald’s are proud to be involved in the ‘Give Your Litter a Lift’ campaign, tackling the growing problem of litter on the roads and on iconic routes. As a business we understand the important role that we play in making the local area a cleaner place for everyone and involvement in this campaign, encouraging customers to take their litter home, is a perfect example of that.”
Victoria Moorhouse, Costa’s Head of Sustainability said: ”We’re delighted to be teaming up with Keep Scotland Beautiful for this week’s Give Your Litter A Lift campaign, helping to raise awareness of the impacts of roadside litter. At Costa Coffee we are committed to making a positive impact in the local communities we serve, which includes daily litter picks across all our Drive-Thru stores. We hope customers will help support their local Drive-Thru teams and work together to make this campaign a huge success.”
