CrowdLeaf Newsletter 14th July 2018

Hello and welcome to this weeks newsletter!

It’s the third week of this beautiful weather but I have to say I am looking forward to a bit of rain just to see the environment get a bit of watering!

This heatwave has been setting record high temperatures not only in Europe but around the world this week.

This brilliant website gives tips and ideas about food waste and how to reduce it.

Love Food Hate Waste

Instead of throwing out or bagging up (to gather dust) all those clothes children quickly grow out of this is a brilliant website to buy or sell unwanted children clothes. It is run by a busy mum who also knows what it’s like with ever growing children and the endless amount of clothes children accumulate.

‘Last year a quarter of the clothing we got rid of was simply thrown away. That’s a staggering 300,000 tonnes that went into landfill. So many of those items could have been re-used and enjoyed by a another child, instead of contributing to the destruction of the planet.’
