In the interest of our environment, Kilteevan is registered as a Poster Free Zone for elections.
Kilteevan Tidy Towns welcome, acknowledge and respect the fact that Denis Naughton, Orla Leyden and Julie O' Donoghue are running Poster Free Campaigns.
All parties and candidates please note the reality is that;
Like other single use plastics, posters they take 400+ years to biodegrade.
In the 2014 local elections, an estimated 611,000 posters were erected with a combined cost of €3M with posters covering the equivalent area of 23 Croke Parks
This produced 366 tonnes of Co2, the equivalent of driving an average car non-stop for 592 days
After 30 days of canvassing, the majority of these posters were sent to landfill.(Poster Free.ie)
