Alupro Ireland are currently recruiting volunteers for their nationwide ‘Every Can Counts’ campaign. Those with a particular interest in environmental sustainability are urged to apply.
Founded in 2007, Alupro Ireland is a not for profit organisation set up to help encourage an interest in aluminium packaging recycling. The 'Every Can Counts' campaign is helping to promote the importance of recycling the drinks cans we use when we’re out and about.
The initiative is promoted nationwide all year round in retail parks, town centres and also at festivals where volunteers encourage those in attendance to recycle more by running competitions and promotions, with the aim of collecting as many used cans as possible.
Volunteers can enjoy the festival atmosphere whilst also doing their bit for the environment.
