Pop into our Pop-up-Shop

For the week commencing Monday 26th January, volunteers from the WSCC West Sussex Waste Prevention Advisors scheme, District and County employees, University Students and surprise guests will be talking complete rubbish from a Pop-up-Shop in the Swan Walk shopping centre, Horsham. Recycling a volunteers suggestion has led to the taking over of a vacant unit at the centre to showcase the skills and ingenuity of the team while promoting the West Sussex waste initiatives.

People of all ages are encouraged to visit the shop to talk rubbish (we do it all the time), recycling and reuse, we will have examples of what you can do to help prevent the amount of waste sent to landfill, activities to engage with, oodles of ideas to impart (e.g. bring your used wrapping paper or Christmas cards for some amazing reuse ideas) and opportunities for you to make suggestions and present waste related ideas that we can feed back to the appropriate people.  

The team are looking forward to meeting as many people as possible and welcome your questions, enquiries and feedback

So make a date for a rubbish opportunity -  we will be situated in Unit 65, close to the Wilko

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.
