16th – 22nd May 2016
Pass it on, repair, refurbish, repurpose, maintain and lend are all ways we can give a new lease of life to the items we own. Reusing things cuts down how much we waste and consume which is good for the planet and our pockets. REUSE Week celebrates many of the wonderful groups and organisations in Devon that are encouraging us to think differently about the stuff we already own, what we buy and what we throw away. Throughout this week, these diverse organisations will be offering events and promotions to enable you to be inspired by what they do, have fun and reuse all at the same time. Check out the listings below for further information.
This week is also a chance to consider holding your own Reuse event, perhaps by using either our Clothes Swap or Give & Take toolkit. Recycle Devon / We have also developed an online directory of opportunities to reuse in Devon’s market towns. Visit Reuse It today and ‘Choose to REUSE!’
