There are some logos and signs that are universally recognised - from Coca Cola through to public toilets. At Amberol, we believe that clear signage and consistent branding are an important part of an effective strategy to reduce littering, and so we were interested to hear about the recent re-branding of a familiar litter logo.
On the weekend of the 3rd to 5th March, over 1,000 litter picks will take place across the UK as part of the Great British Spring Clean.
We like to think we can help solve most people’s rubbish and recycling problems with our sturdy litter bins. So, when the remote South Atlantic island of St Helena came to us looking for a way to improve recycling rates and tackle a problem with mynah birds, we were happy to come up with a bespoke solution.
Be inventive – plants will grow in almost anything. Sinks, baths, even wellington boots can make quirky containers - although they may not provide ideal growing conditions.
It’s the time of year when our grit bins come into their own and so we were interested to read about Oldham Council’s recent initiative to name its gritter vehicle in an annual public vote. The competition has seen previous years’ vehicles named Freddie Salted and Gritney Spears.
When it comes to planting bulbs, autumn is the time to do it. Planting around this time gives them enough time to produce strong roots before winter hits. So, as we are now well into the autumn, it’s time to put on those gardening gloves before the first frost arrives.
Summer is such a busy time of year for many of our customers with preparations for Britain in Bloom judging, floral displays to be maintained and in some regions, a massive influx of seasonal visitors. It’s also the time when the results of all that hard work can be seen in all their glory. We are always delighted to see Amberol self-watering containers of all shapes and sizes full to bursting with beautiful blooms, shrubs and edible plants.
