Reuse-Repair at Home: New facebook page launched for EWWR
|Email item||Print item||
A local European Week for Waste Reduction initiative aimed to encourage reuse and repair in households, especially those in the Maltese Islands, has just launched a facebook page named Reuse-Repair at Home
Some people more then others tend to mend, restore or upcycle items at home but do not show them off.
On this page everybody who has done something of this kind, or knows of some good ideas and projects to encourage others to repair, reuse, and upcycle rather then just throwing away or recycling, is encouraged to post. “A lot of things can be given a new life and be put to good use.”
This initiative aims to encourage upcycling and get people to speak about it. There are so many ideas around which are not being shared!
The organiser commented, “let’s together become a more creative community and with our actions reduce the amount waste ending up at the landfill, litter around the islands and even the carbon and water footprint are reduced.”
