Stop the waste

The amount of resources wasted in this island is beyond belief. Visit the waste disposal center at La Collette and watch for a while as vehicles stream in constantly, loaded with unwanted or broken possessions. 

On an individual basis we can all do something. I grow trees from seed and pass them to others to plant around the island. My wife litter picks as we walk our dog around the country lanes. I make furniture from recycled timber and have even made windows from old snooker tables. So much of what is thrown away could repaired and reused. We recently had an eleven year old computer refurbished and then donated it to a charity.

 

Why the contribution is important

It is not difficult to make changes, however old habits can be hard to kick.
