Riverside Plaza is an Eco-Friendly Shopping CentreRiverside Plaza Shopping Centre, located in Queanbeyan, New South Wales approximately 10 kms from Canberra, and part of the AMP Capital Shopping Centres group, is the latest Shopping Centre and Retail Facility to begin providing complimentary logo printed Personal / Portable Ashtrays from No BuTTs to their Shoppers, Visitors & Shop/Facility Staff as part of their ongoing efforts to eliminate cigarette butt litter at their location.

"We take the issue of environmental protection and community responsibility very seriously", said Kathrina Weinhonig, Administration Assistant at Riverside Plaza. "We recently participated in the Earth Hour campaign where the centre turned off the lights for one hour as part of a broader effort to reduce global warming - and the problem of cigarette butt litter around our location is an issue we are absolutely committed to addressing."

"Riverside Plaza is going 100% Smoke Free, but it's simply not good enough, and would actually be socially irresponsible to prohibit smoking without giving our customers and staff the ability to do the right thing with their cigarette butt when entering or leaving our facility."

Riverside Plaza is the latest of over 500 Shopping Centres now providing complimentary Personal Ashtrays to their Shoppers & Visitors
"No BuTTs logo printed Personal Ashtrays for Shopping Centres are a brilliant way to encourage and assist our customers to do the right thing with their butts, not just here at Riverside Plaza, but from that point on and anywhere else they ever go." said Kathrina,  "and the logo printing just reinforces our high standards of environmental responsibility everytime they're used and long after our Customers have left our location."

"Apart from that, the fact is that many of our tenants also sell cigarettes, so it's really nice, and we think the right thing to do to be able to offer our visitors a solution to cigarette butt littering wherever they go."

Eco-Pole WET System Wall & Post Ashtray - optional Liquid Charged for instant butt extinguishing!No Butts Personal Ashtrays will be distributed to shoppers and visitors by Riverside Staff and Security Personnel and will also be available from the Information & Service Desk.

"We're also taking the opportunity to begin progressively upgrading our wall-mounted ashtrays over to No BuTTs Eco-Pole Ashtrays, so to receive a bonus Eco-Pole Ashtray simply for ordering our Mini-Butts Personal Ashtrays was an opportunity to good to miss."

"The AMP Group of Companies sets the highest standards when it comes to environmental protection and responsibility," said Jack Jacobson, No BuTTs Managing Director, "and we're proud to be able to assist this iconic Australian company with it's eco-friendly endeavours."

"Talk is cheap, and many organisations these days like to go on about their green credentials, whilst ignoring the basic and easily resolvable environmental problem of their own smokers cigarette butt litter. It's great to note that more AMP owned locations every week from their office buildings and shopping centres to their other commercial properties are taking proactive measures to address this serious environmental issue."

"AMP and Riverside Plaza Management should be commended for their responsible and positive cigarette butt litter reduction initiatives and they should also be congratulated for taking advantage of a brilliant little Eco-friendly product that will reinforce and enhance their public image -  and help protect our environment every time they're used and seen."

Over 500 Shopping Centres, Shopping Plazas, Shopping Facilties and Retail Shopping Strips are now using No BuTTs Pocket / Personal Ashtrays to reduce their cigarette butt litter and enhance their corporate profile.

That's good for all and great for the environment.
