HAVE A GREEN XMAS!
Recycling and waste collections after the Xmas/New Year period are the bulkiest of the yearly cycle. This Christmas season, Kent Green Party is issuing a challenge to everyone – to have a greener, less wasteful Xmas. In a time of recession, many households need to keep the costs of Christmas down. Dr Hazel Dawe, Chair of Kent Green Party, comments:
“We want everyone to re-use packaging, re-heat appropriate foods, redistribute usable goods to charity shops or use them as presents, reclaim unwanted furniture for second-hand use, rot down all kitchen waste into compost, recycle what cannot be re-used and above all re-educate the whole household about redeeming the maximum benefit from the money we all spend at Xmas time.
“These 8 ‘Rs’ – re-use, re-heat, redistribute, reclaim, rot down, recycle, re-educate and redeem – will help to keep household debts under control at the most challenging time of year. By all means, have a happy Xmas and New Year – but remember, now is the season of waste, not just good cheer, and why waste money if a little thought will make it go further?”
