Plastic bottle Christmas tree highlights community litter pick

A Warminster Town Council staff member has made an 8ft high Christmas tree from empty plastic bottles.

Sally Ward made the tree entirely in her own time to highlight the Warminster community litter pick.

The tree is called “The Salvaged Spruce”. It took more than a month to make, and contains around 200 empty bottles.

Town Councillors were impressed and praised Sally for her hard work and inspiring creation.

The message of the tree is about the importance of the environment and the need for people to reduce their use of materials, particularly plastic, and to encourage reuse and recycling.

The tree is on display in Warminster Civic Centre but will be moved to Minster Church as part of their Christmas Tree Festival.

The community litter picks are on the first Saturday of every month and target a different part of Warminster each time.  All the litter pickers, members of the public, councillors or council staff, are volunteers. Anyone is welcome to join the litter pick team. The next litter pick will be on Saturday, February 2.
