Clydeside Collective and St Enoch Centre challenge shoppers to make eco pledge

The St. Enoch Centre and the Clydeside Collective have launched an initiative to get 1,000 Glaswegians to pledge a personal eco-friendly commitment.

Centre staff and members of the public are being urged to state their pledge on the shop front of the Clydeside Collective.

Each person pledging will be given a free sustainable bag, designed by COP26 One Step Greener Ambassador Sara Thomson.

It’s part of a drive to have people think more carefully about life choices.

Anne Ledgerwood St. Enoch general manager said: “We are excited to be working with The Clydeside Collective on a project we hope will unite Glaswegians in a joint mission to each make small changes and sustainable choices every day.”

Sara Thomson, founder of the Clydeside Collective and bag designer said“We have designed and made 1,000 stylish sustainable bags using eco-friendly inks and materials. These will be given away to Centre visitors making environmental pledges. We are excited to help people make their promises and provide a public platform for change.”

Visitors will be invited to state their commitments by writing on a public wall. Pledges will be shared across the Centre’s social media with hashtag #SustainableStEnoch.

St. Enoch Centre recently received an International Green Apple Award in recognition for its sustainable practices, including introducing better waste management and energy strategies.

In 2011, it became the first shopping centre in Scotland to become 100% waste-to-landfill free.
