Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose

Plastic Bottle tops
A pile of plastic bottle tops to recycle and repurpose.

President Diane has introduced this recycling project to help make a difference during 2020/21. Each meeting an item will be introduced that members might collect and , in the process, improve our environment. Those members who are self isolating will also be able to participate. So far the list includes plastic bottle tops , duvets/pillows and cushions, stamps, bric a brac, toiletries, jewellery and children’s books to name a few – and more will be added as the year moves forward. Many different charities will benefit during the year including the Alzheimer’s Society, local hospice, animal charities, women’s refuge, our local hospital …and more! The plastic bottle tops are a long standing collection started by our enthusiastic Programme Action Officer Sian Kent to promote the issue of throw away plastic. The bottle tops will eventually be converted to a recycled plastic chair! So whilst we recognise that our financial donations may not be as generous as usual we hope these other ways of donating will help improve many more lives.
