Kiosks and celebrities for Composting Awareness Week 2008

This years national Compost Awareness Week (CAW) will link up with other green events and promote composting through key retailer in-store kiosks.

The weeks theme is Green up the Environment and events will run from May 4 to 10.  It is rumoured that actress Jenny Seagrove will front the campaign, following in the footsteps of actress Gaynor Faye.

Organisers, The Composting Association, have also signed up key retailers to offer composting advice via specially commissioned in-store information kiosks. The kiosks have been commissioned by the Know Your Compost Campaign and will provide advice to shoppers in Tescos and Wye Vaile garden centres.

CAW will also join with Londons Covent Gardens Spring Renaissance event, which is based around the flower market (running April 23 to May 18). It will have a green corner where presentations and discussions will take place. Home composting advisors from the Waste & Resources Action Programme, which supports CAW, will be in the corner on the weekend of May 3 and 4.

Further support will come from events organised by The National Trust, the Womens Institute and the Scout Association. While free bags of compost will be available from  West London Composting on the morning of May 4 at its in-vessel composting facility at Highview Farm in Harefield, Middlesex.
