CrowdLeaf Newsletter 9th August 2018

Hello and welcome to this weeks newsletter.

Come and join CrowdLeaf and Southampton Common Forum on a litter pick around Southampton Common on Friday 17th August whereby we will be meeting at the Hawthorn Cafe for 18:30. If anyone can help to take away any of the recycling or aluminium this would be a great help too!

We would love to hear from you if you have any articles or events you would like to share, just contact us via the email addresses in the Contact Us! section of the newsletter.

Hampshire Recycling

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.’
