3 actions you can take right now:

1. Submit a complaint about Clear Channel’s ‘Platform For Good’ bus stop ads

How can a company which profits from pushing adverts for gambling, alcohol, vaping and junk food claim to be a ‘Platform for Good’? Adblock groups have submitted compaints to the advertising regulator on the grounds that Clear Channel’s ads are greenwashing, mislead citizens over the company’s contribution to local communities, and misrepresent its business as beneficial to society and the environment. Read our complaint and follow our easy instructions to submit your own.

2. Ask your MP to back a ban on the most polluting adverts
