Athlone Drug Awareness Group supporting the environment

Athlone Drug Awareness Group is actively taking a part in paving the way for a healthier environment with the introduction of reusable stainless steel Athlone Drug Awareness Group sports bottles.

The bottle has a 700ml capacity and is perfect for trips to the gym or out for a walk or run and has a clip to enable attachment to a sports or school bag. Keeping active is very important, regular physical activity can relieve stress, anxiety, depression and anger.

Athlone Drug Awareness Group is committed to providing education and awareness not only around the dangers of drug and alcohol misuse but also about the importance of our physical and mental health. The state of one’s physical and mental health results in the lifestyle choices we make.

The bottle has been recently welcomed by the healthy living programme provided by Foroige and Athlone Karate Club. Athlone Drug Awareness Group met with Kieran Burke of Foroige and Anthony Rodden of Athlone Karate Club to follow up on the excellent activities they are providing for the young people.

Mayor Frankie Keena, Chairman of Athlone Drug Awareness Group, presented members of the programme with the water bottles with the aim of raising awareness and working towards removing single use plastic products from the environment.

In thanking the Midland Regional Drug and Alcohol Taskforce for the funding the eco-friendly bottles, Cllr. Keena noted the responsibility in protecting the environment, a role in which Athlone Drug Awareness Group is delighted to be involved.

“Athlone Drug Awareness Group group continues to play its part in creating awareness about the dangers of substance misuse through its work with schools and residents/sporting associations,” the Town Mayor remarked.
