Diverting plastics from landfill

As part of this recycling scheme we are participating in a nationwide recycling competition called the Febreze Freshness Rewards Contest. By collecting these waste resources local people can help secure a share of £5,000, which the scheme sponsors Febreze are offering (£1,000 being the top prize).

You can help the environment and raise money for the William Penn Primary School by collecting the following:

 

  • Any brands and sizes of plastic bottle trigger heads and pumps (used for air care and home cleaning products such as kitchen / bathroom cleaner sprays).

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.
