Lauder benefits from supermarket bag charges
Lauder in Bloom is among groups that have made significant environmental and sustainable improvements in their local communities after being awarded a Keep Scotland Beautiful Community Grant, funded from the proceeds of the carrier bag charge collected by Tesco in Scotland since October last year.
Lauder in Bloom was among the recipients of the £250 Community Grant, which allowed it to become further engaged in the local environment, make a sustainable difference locally and positively improve outdoor experiences in the town.
The grant helped Lauder in Bloom invest in plants from a local nursery and subsidise workshops for local residents. Participants learned skills including making bug hotels, bird boxes or hanging baskets - encouraging residents to be greener, tidier and more floral than ever before.
