New recycling scheme

Press release 

Sussex Green Living and the William Penn Primary School are taking part in a nationwide recycling competition called the Febreze Freshness Rewards Contest and is asking local people to help them be in with a chance of winning a share of £5,000 of charity donations (including a £1,000 top prize).   This contest is part of a new recycling initiative that Sussex Green Living has signed up to called the Air and Home Care Brigade which enables local people to recycle used plastic air fresheners and plug-in refills, air and home care product trigger heads, pumps and caps and flexible home cleaning wipe packs of any brand for the first time.  None of these materials can be recycled by local council collections and so would otherwise end up in landfill.

Sussex Green Living also earns £0.02 for each piece of air and home care waste they send in for recycling.  All the money raised goes to William Penn School with £486.69 having been raised so far.

The support of the wider Sussex community can really help boost the amount of air and home care waste Sussex Green Living saves from landfill, our chances of becoming a winner on the Febreze Freshness Rewards Contest and the amount of money we raise for William Penn Primary School.

Any local people wanting to help Sussex Green Living’s efforts simply drop their used plastic air fresheners and plug-in refills, air and home care product trigger heads, pumps and caps and flexible home cleaning wipe packs of any brand (plus the other types of waste we collect: any brand of pens, baby food pouches, biscuit wrappers, coffee refill packs, coffee bean bags, plastic coffee jar lids, single serve coffee sticks / sachets and Tassimo TDISCS) back to our two collection boxes at:

1.    William Penn Primary School, Coolham, Nr Billingshurst in West Sussex between the hours of 8.35am and 3.15pm Monday to Friday

2.    The Quaker Friends Meeting House in Worthing Road in Horsham where they have a 24/7 public collection point.

Further information on the drop off locations and all the types of waste that can be recycled can be found at http://www.sussexgreenliving.co.uk/recycling-zone/recycling-for-charity/.

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.
