A new initiative…. getting people to commit to a cleaner Exmouth!
Watch out for this card!
Here's the postcard artwork. The idea is for an individual to adopt their street, or an area of the town. S/he then uses the postcards to invite neighbours and friends to join them in keeping the adopted street or area clean long term. The postcard can be put through neighbours' letterboxes or used face-to-face. We have 4 adopted streets to date.The aim is to: promote pride in the neighbourhood and in Exmouth in general; promote recycling; deter littering (the presence of litter suggests that it is OK to drop litter); improve behaviour (crime and vandalism rises when streets are littered); build community; promote Transition Exmouth and increase membership.If you adopt a street you will be provided with enough postcards for your area (or, so I don't carry all the expense, you can print your own onto thin card and cut to size-- I used Copyrite on Victoria Road--black ink only--for this and used a trimmer).There is a Clean Street Exmouth group page on Facebook which will show developments and promote discussion.
