This ReUse Month let’s see how much we can Repair and ReUse around us.
Here is a 30 min film https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LphnOF7WAZs&t=1s showing some of the Repair in ReUse that we have mainstreamed in Fingal . These ideas are replicable, other organisations and groups can do similar initiatives so that Repair and ReUse become our culture again.
Take a trip to your local charity shop when buying a gift, books, picture frames, clothes or household items.
October is Ireland’s National Reuse Month, reuse is about valuing our stuff, by using and reusing it for as long and as often as possible. This avoids the need to extract raw materials, manufacture and distribute new stuff, and avoids waste thereby cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.
Why not make a commitment to ReUse as many things as possible to save the environment.
