recycle more week…

recycle more...?

recycle more...?

yes folks today marks the start of repak recycle week 2009 & there is lots of stuff going on around the country to mark it including some work by myself.
 
The guys at repak are moving with the times I’m glad to say and not only are repak recycling on twitter, they also have a decent weblog with youtube videos embedded.
That said, the reason for it is to get you to think a little more about what is being chucked and whats not…in that context if you can we can always do a little more… even in my own case 😉 
 
today courtesy of the irish times click here  
20,000 tonnes of material meant for recycling is dumped annually as people place incorrect items in green bins or fail to clean out waste correctly a study has shown.
 The thing I liked was that the videos are kept simple and that whole corporate bit, although there if you wish to view it, it’s kept seperate so the normal Joes like myself and yourself can get on with the business of ‘can that go in there’.

a recycled show garden…

Remember this post about the smithfield festival….?

Here’s what they said:
In association with the [myplant.ie] rediscovery centre ballymun and waste management, dublin city council, award winning landscape designer peter donegan returns to smithfield aiming to create a small urban garden of sorts filled with nothing but what could have been thrown out and free to take including washing machines, cookers, satellite dishes and basically anything else he can lay his hands on! from landfills and repairs to greens and growing and from throw away useless to a simple bit of that’ll do just fine.

Here’s what happens in one day. In Dublin City Centre. When one has one day to put a show garden together…..

The beauty about this garden is that the plants will be split 3 ways and donated to 2 local community garden groups in smithfield and also in ballymun. Thanks once again to Pat Fitzgerald, all of the other electrical goods will return and again be recycled and the recycled furniture will return to Ballymun to be sold
