Dungloe leading the way with ‘Going Green’ initiative

Dungloe is leading the way following the launch of the 'Going Green' initiative.

The joint initiative between Donegal County Council and Dungloe Tidy Towns Committee, is the first of its kind in the county and is encouraging businesses in the area to sign up to a Charter to promote working towards a more sustainable environment.
