Do you live in Ireland’s Tidiest Town for 2017?

Put your community spirit to the test!

The annual Tidy Towns competition is now open for entries for 2017. In its 59th year and proudly sponsored by SuperValu for the past 26 years, the competition has brought hundreds of communities from all around Ireland together to make their locality beautiful.

As part of their entry, everyone in every village, town or city in Ireland can volunteer their time to help make their home place look its best. In addition to the main prize, communities are encouraged to make their local area more environmentally friendly with special awards in areas such as water conservation, sustainability and clean air.

Stuck for upcycling ideas? SuperValu will be helping you with some upcycling inspiration over the next few weeks with instruction videos appearing on Independent.ie.

Here is the first one to get you started on your upcycling project:

This year SuperValu are excited to give a helping hand to the committees and the general public with the "SuperValu Upcycling Challenge" which is encouraging them to integrate upcycled materials into their communities, with their efforts supported by local SuperValu retailers around the country.

There will also be a series of "How to Upcycle" videos available on SuperValu.ie. Here you can learn how to upcycle wooden pallets to create the perfect bench, upcycle old tyres to make seasonal flower beds, reuse tea bags and coffee beans to create compost and much more. There are lots of prizes to be won over the course of the summer for the winning photos, on the SuperValu Facebook page.

To get involved in the SuperValu Upcycling Challenge simply upload your photos of your upcycling project to the SuperValu Facebook page or share on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #supervalutidytowns to enter. Best of Luck!
