Wychavon plant giveaway rooted in success

Droitwich Editorial 17th Oct, 2022   0

THE FREE plant giveaway by Wychavon Council was a huge success after 1,000 bedding plants were given away.

The giveaway, which was part of a new waste-reduction scheme, saw people from across Droitwich Spa, Evesham and Pershore bag themselves free plants.

Around 150 people turned up to the giveaway events at the beginning of October.

In previous years the plants would have been sent for composting, but this new scheme will see Wychavon produce less waste, help the environment and give back to the community.

Coun Emma Stokes, Executive Board Member for Resident and Customer Services on Wychavon District Council, said: “The plants have spent their summer brightening up our beautiful parks, and now they’ll be looked after over the winter to be given another lease of life next year.

“The bedding plant giveaway has been such a success, and we have received such positive feedback from everybody that we will look to do it again next year.”
