Thanks to Horsham District Council’s Community Climate Fund, Sussex Green Living will be visiting and working with 10 parishes in a 3Rs Roadshow to raise awareness and understanding of the alternatives to throwing waste away. The Roadshow will focus on:
- Reduce waste by repairing
- Reuse plastic by refilling
- Recycle more
The mobile float will visit village fetes and bespoke events focusing on Repairing, Refilling and Recycling as ways to reduce waste. They will be highlighting the problems, offering solutions and signposting residents to their nearest facilities, whether it is a repair café, a refill shop or a drop-off recycling location.
At some locations, they will also be offering a Pop-up Repair Café or Household and Personal Hygiene Cleaning Bottle Refill Pop-Up Shop.
As part of this 3Rs Roadshow, Sussex Green Living will be working with parish councils and local community and environment groups to help launch new repair cafes, new recycling drop off locations and support the introduction of refill shops so that all residents have access to these fantastic facilities on their doorstep.
These initiatives are a win win for residents as they save money as well as benefiting the environment through reducing waste and plastics - whether it's repairing a broken iron rather than replacing it or refilling a shampoo bottle instead of buying a new product.
If you would like to get involved either to support the launch of these initiatives locally or to find out where your nearest facilities are, please contact email@example.com
