The Big Scoop campiagn 15 - 21 June

27 May 2015

Dogs Trust in association with Keep Britain Tidy present The Big Scoop campaign.

Did you know that UK's 9 million dogs produce over 1,000 tonnes of waste each day? That weighs as much as 200 elephants or 100 double decker buses.
Dog mess affects everyone. It is unpleasant to see it lying around on pavements and in parks, and it's even more unpleasant to step in. But the good news is that the Dogs Trust, in association with Keep Britain Tidy, are launching a new campaign to ensure most of this mess ends up in the bin.
This year's campaign is "Be a scooperhero" and its really easy to be a Scooperhero with your dog ...

1. BRING BAGS with you before you set off on your walk

2. BAG THE MESS if your dog has fouled, but be careful to not get any on your hands

3. BIN THE BAG in any public bin

4. CLEAN YOUR HANDS using water or hand sanitizer

If you'd like to spread the word, you can download a poster and leaflet from the Dogs Trust website. 

For schools, councils and community leaders: If you would like to take part in The Big Scoop through events or ordering materials please use The Big Scoop order form on the Dogs Trust website. You'll be able to order capes, rosettes, posters, leaflets and poo bags to help you promote your events or campaigns.
