NOT FOR PROFITS & COMMUNITY GROUPS
Even if you have just started taking small steps and you do anything on the list below, get on the directory and get seen.
- A new place to be found on the web and improve your SEO.
- The share buttons to Facebook and Twitter expose your organisation to new audiences.
- Add your own donate button.
- It's free.
Because you are a not for profit or community activity, you can hide our red donate button on your page and add your own button in the contacts panel to direct visitors to your website donations page.
Add an image and/or your logo and you will have a page in minutes. Then add links to your website and social media to drive traffic to your organisation. Here are some example pages. For a limited period, we will create your page for you – send your web and/or social media addresses and we will set that up ready for you to publish.
If you are a community group formed specifically for the purpose of picking up plastic and waste visit here.
