Dog poo fairy scoops another award

Posted Friday 18 September 2015

Mosman Council’s innovative ‘There’s no such thing as the dog poo fairy’ campaign has scooped another win during last night’s Keep NSW Beautiful Blue Star Sustainability Awards. The campaign was awarded Highly Commended in the Going Green Education category that rewards campaigns which incorporate environmentalism in their operations through education or environmentally conscious features.

Last month the campaign also won the Excellence in Communication category (for areas with a population of 30,000 or less) in the RH Dougherty Awards run by Local Government NSW.

The campaign, which aims to encourage responsible dog ownership, resulted in a 53% reduction in the amount of dog poo found in Mosman Council’s parks and reserves.
