Fair Trade+ to hold info event

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Con­fused about what can go in your re­cy­cle bin? Un­sure of what items are ac­cepted for free at Ram­pere Land­fill and Re­cy­cling Cen­tre? Won­der­ing how to re­duce waste? Don’t worry, you are not alone. But help is at hand. Balt­in­glass Fair Trade+ con­tin­ues its ‘Stand4­fair­ness-4-the-en­vi­ron­ment’ cam­paign with a quirky lit­tle event next Satur­day, De­cem­ber 1.

With the new bin col­lec­tion charges now im­ple­mented, it is im­por­tant to re­cy­cle but it is even bet­ter to re­duce our waste. There is a dan­ger too of in­creased il­le­gal dump­ing, dam­ag­ing the good work done by the many Pure Mile teams in the lo­cal­ity. Now more than ever there is a need for in­for­ma­tion on how to tackle waste, on our doorstep and glob­ally.

So, drop into G2 (Main Street/ Church Lane cor­ner) in Balt­in­glass next Satur­day, any time be­tween 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

With Christ­mas now less than a month away you may like to dis­cuss ideas about more en­vi­ron­ment-friendly Christ­mas gifts and less en­vi­ron­ment-dam­ag­ing gift wrap­ping. You may want to ask ques­tions or give feed­back on the new Fair Trade+ in­for­ma­tion boards. Or you may like to talk to peo­ple about the lo­cal Pure Mile ini­tia­tives and how the Re­fill. ie and Con­scious Cup projects are spread­ing aware­ness and giv­ing pause for thought. You might even like to have a hot Fair­trade cuppa while you cir­cu­late. You will be very wel­come.
