Acton Reduce and Recycle hub went on tour for the day to Imperial College for their Sustainability week on Tuesday 21st February. We invited our partner organisations which are involved in waste reduction and circular economy.
Mary travelled light and took the tube with the Ealing Repair Shopping Trolley which was great for all our leaflets and equipment.
Hammersmith Library of things, a social enterprise that encourages people to borrow than buy, from things like steam cleaners, staple guns, to waffle machines and ice cream makers. One group of students liked the idea so much that they decided to plan a party around hiring items, the projector for films, the sound system for karaoke, with the waffle and ice cream maker for treats.
Reduce and Recycle hub also promoted Traid who offers a free doorstep clothes collection to raise money for their great charity. Traid is committed to protecting the environment and reducing world poverty by recycling, fundraising and campaigning in the UK. Students were also told about the Fixing Factory which are collecting unloved laptops and refurbishing them and passing them onto those who need laptops.
We hope to partner with more organisations wanting to run sustainable events and support them in their event. If you would like to partner with us email Mary.Horesh@actionwestlondon.org.uk
