Employees from A.G. Barr’s Strathmore Spring Water factory took part in a clean-up of Forfar Loch Country Park as part of environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful’s Clean Up Scotland campaign.

Seven factory employees were joined by Angus Countryside Rangers last Thursday (September 22), to clean the greenspace and collected 19 bags of litter and recyclable material, including a shoe and a child’s scooter, from the area.

Roger White, Chief Executive of A.G Barr, said: “We take our environmental responsibilities seriously and are proud to work closely with Keep Scotland Beautiful supporting their Clean Up Scotland campaign to improve local environments and encourage people to do the right thing and dispose of their litter properly.

“This week’s clean-up has made a real difference to this popular outdoor space at Forfar and is a great example of how strengthening links with the local community can deliver great results.”

Derek Robertson, Chief Executive of Keep Scotland Beautiful said: “A.G Barr is a business which is committed to improving the local environment - from inspiring retailers and shoppers to improve their own local environments, to encouraging employees to help Clean Up Scotland.

“I would like to thank A.G. Barr for supporting the Clean Up Scotland campaign. By joining more than 600,000 volunteers across Scotland to take Clean Up action the volunteers from A.G. Barr have done a fantastic job to help us achieve this local goal.”
