Have you read about ‘Trash Girl’? Nadia Sparkes, 12, of Norwich, has been in the news lately for her commitment to keeping her neighbourhood spick and span. She simply picks up all the litter she finds on her way to school and bins it. Well done Nadia!
The story has developed, though, because of the bullying she has had about it – including being dubbed ‘Trash Girl’ by sneering classmates – and her ignoring their taunts and refusing to stop picking up litter. Now she has the last laugh because she is a media hit. She has already been immortalised in a cartoon as a superhero:
… and had a tribute from van artist Ruddy Muddy:
… and now a Photo Cutouts blog post! Trash Girl, we salute you!
Nadia has been approached by Keep Britain Tidy for an interview and looks well set to become a spokesperson. Which leads us neatly into the reason for this blog post: Photo Cutouts have supplied a board to Keep Britain Tidy and two boards to Blue Flag, the clean beach organisation.
Photo cutouts are a proven attraction at trade shows, conferences and events. They create a focus for public engagement and a great photo opportunity. If you wish. we’ll include hashtags for social sharing.
You can get involved with keeping Britain clean by picking up litter yourself, and if you want to take it further you can get into Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean from the 2nd to the 4th of March 2018. Join the growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
