Keep Britain Tidy campaign to move beyond simply recycling, to reducing the amount of new stuff that we buy and the amount of waste we create.
We should be cherishing the things we already have, repairing them rather than sending to landfill and finding new homes for things we no longer need.
Last year’s Buy Nothing New campaign saw 65% of participants living up to exactly that mantra, whilst 31% bought less than they normally would.
Finstall residents and businesses are encouraged to sign up to the campaign to receive free weekly e-mails containing handy tips, and a free digital free resources pack. Please register at keepbritaintidy.org/bnnm
It’s win/win – to save your pennies and protect the planet.
