SOLIHULL Council’s litter picking initiative Love Solihull has scooped an award for environmental best practice.
Love Solihull has received an International Corporate Social Responsibility Excellence accolade at this year’s The Green Apple Awards.
The council’s initiative last year also tasted success, picking up an award for environmental best practice.
It will also now become a Green World Ambassador as their winning paper will be published in The Green Book – a leading international work of reference on environmental best practice.
The group has worked hard to organise litter picking sessions throughout the borough as well as advocate for green causes.
Solihull Council’s cabinet member for the environment and highways, Coun Ken Hawkins, said: “Love Solihull work with local businesses, schools, residents and community groups to make a positive difference to Solihull and its environment.
“They link local businesses with community projects and go on to deliver some amazing projects from developing school grounds to supporting litter picks.
“This award is justifiable recognition of the work that they carry out in Solihull and shows what we can achieve when we all work together.
“The dedication and support of volunteers from across the borough has made these awards possible.”
