Visit County Durham and Unbox the Universe have joined forces to launch a new mobile app to create cleaner, greener communities with a reward system which brings value to local businesses. The app, called "UnLitter UK," encourages community action by rewarding residents and visitors for disposing of litter in their local area. Available for consumers to download on Friday 24th February 2023.

Greener Communities

"Litter is a growing problem that affects us all, and I believe that community action is the key to solving it," said Vivek Gurav, The Plog Man. "We are taking an innovative approach to tackle this issue. By working together, we can make a real difference and create cleaner, greener communities."

An Innovative Reward System

William ARTHEY, UK Lead at Unbox: "Unbox's Litter Solution app, UnLitter UK, is more than just an app to help clean up litter, it's an innovative reward system that encourages users to take action in their communities. With each piece of litter picked up and properly disposed of, users are rewarded with Circular Ucoins that can be redeemed for real-world rewards. It's a fun and easy way to make a positive impact and create lasting change."

Bringing Value to SMEs and Enhancing Visitor Experience

Michelle Gorman, managing director of Visit County Durham, said: “We are delighted to be piloting this Visit England initiative, as part of our commitment to becoming a sustainable destination. By partnering with Unbox the Universe to launch UnLitter UK, we can play our part in maintaining a clean environment for all who live in and visit Durham. By encouraging users to redeem their Circular Ucoins for rewards offered by local businesses, we are not only encouraging a responsible attitude towards litter but boosting the economy. With this app, we are confident that we can improve the overall visitor experience and promote the county as a top destination for tourism."

UnLitter UK will be available for residents and visitors to download for free on the App Store and Google Play on Friday 24th February 2023. With its focus on community action and incentives for correctly disposing of litter, UnLitter UK is set to become a powerful tool in the promotion of the community fight against littering and boosting the local economy.
