Sussex Greener Living Campaign

Pedro launches his Sussex Greener Living Campaign.

South American Tree Frog

Pedro has been very busy setting up lots of new recycling schemes to divert waste materials from the landfill in Warnham.  These great schemes will benefit the William Penn Primary School in Coolham, WAKOOS nursery in Billingshurst, Sussex Wildlife Trust and the The Philippine Community Fund.  Billingshurst Primary School have also set up some of their own recycling schemes. 

These are the waste resources which you can recycle; more information about the schemes and where you can deliver the recycling can be found in Pedro’s new Recycling Zone here.

Plastic milk bottle tops, contrary to public belief can’t be recycled through the council, but never fear Pedro is here! Now you can recycle them to benefit one of these charities – WAKOOS children’s nursery in Billingshurst and or Sussex Wildlife Trust.

Pedro is also diverting our landfill materials to help get Philippine families (children as young as 4) off their landfills and into work and school! Read more about The Philippine Community Fund (PCF) here. The waste resources marked with an * below can be recycled by the council, however you might want to choose to send some to help this fantastic worthy charity.

“Don’t buy it and bin it – recycle it”, says Pedro!

All you need to do is put the items in a secondhand carrier bag, making sure each type of recycling is clean, dry and in separate bags. Write on the bag which cause you want the money to go towards. If there is no cause written on the bag the proceeds will be split between them.

More information about the current recycling collection locations can be found here.  If you would like to offer to collect for your geographical area, please contact us and we will add any additional collection points to the site.

 

Next recycling initiative……

Pedro also wants to set up a more public recycling collection point in a Sussex town for any of the waste resources above and a new recycling scheme which is about to be launched which will enable us to recycle:

coffee refill packs, coffee jar lids, coffee bean bags, coffee sticks (the individual servings).  Please contact Pedro if you can help.

 

We want you, the people of Sussex, to take some ownership of  www.sussexgreenliving.co.uk Forward your suggestions for events, videos, parks and green spaces etc to be added to “your” site.

About Carrie Cort

My name is Carrie Cort, I set up Sussex Green Living out of concern for the way we humans are treating the planet which sustains us. With motherhood in 2008 came concern about environmental sustainability and a burning desire to learn how we can live more environmentally friendly lifestyles, in harmony with nature. I have always had a passion for the countryside, animals and the natural environment. Most of my career has been spent in marketing and communications, mainly within education and the landbased industries, latterly using the power of video communications. In an effort to help create a climate for change I decided to use my knowledge and digital skills to share ideas which anyone can adopt, saving money and the planet. I’m not an expert, just an ordinary person who is on a greening journey and wanting to pass on what I’ve learnt to others. Let’s all make some simple changes, become more resilient and try to lead simpler, less materialistic and consumerist way of life.
