We’re Watching You

Our glow-in-the-dark We’re Watching You intervention was tested with 17 local authority partners on over 100 sites and found that the approach was highly effective in reducing dog fouling at both the target sites and displacement sites by 46% on average. The intervention has won a number of awards and is now being used by over 160 land managers across the country.

Our findings were published in inaugural the Journal of Litter and Environmental Quality.
