What is recycling and why is it important? We here at Preloved thought it was important to learn more about recycling, and what we can do in our every day lives to help combat the millions of tonnes of waste that goes to landfill every year.
To learn more and give YOU valuable information, we spoke with WRAP, the UK’s leading organisation for re-use and recycling. They have a vision to be in a world where resources are used sustainably. – recycle more, waste less.
For over a decade it has worked with businesses, individuals, governments and communities to help them get better value out of resources (improve resource efficiency). WRAP is the organisation that brings you these three innovative consumer campaigns:
Love Food Hate Waste to help save money and reduce food waste
Recycle Now to help recycle more
Love Your Clothes to help keep clothes in use for longer
Established as a not-for-profit company in 2000, WRAP is backed by government funding from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
To launch our partnership, WRAP have provided some inspiring and educational insights into how we can make a start by thinking more sustainably at home:
- Recycle Now | It’s Recycle Week! – learn more about recycle week and where to find valuable information on how to recycle more efficiently.
- Love Food Hate Waste – Love Food Hate Waste aims to raise awareness of the need to reduce food waste and help us take action.
- Love Your Clothes | Unlock the Value of your Wardobe – We throw away thousands of pounds worth of clothes to landfill every year, learn more about what you can do to reduce your share.
To keep you up to date with additional recycling information, we will be launching a recycling page jam packed full of facts, hints and tips to help YOU live a more sustainable life. Keep an eye out on Facebook, Twitter and Google + to ensure you don’t miss the launch of ourRecycling Page!
