£1 to be donated for every pledge to recycle this January
This January a brand new Reduce, Reuse, Recycle campaign launches in Notts to help boost recycling and raise funds for Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman's chosen charity My Sight Nottingham. In return for each pledge made during January Veolia are donating £1 to the charity.
There are lots of reasons why reducing waste, reusing wherever possible and recycling correctly is the best New Year’s resolution to make, but this year it could also help to raise money for a local charity that is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with sight loss in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Nottinghamshire residents are encouraged to make a pledge online. In return for each pledge made during January Veolia are donating £1 to the charity. The first 200 pledges made will see their pledgers receive a reusable Nottinghamshire Recycles water bottle and all pledgers can opt in for the chance to win an eco hamper to help start their reduced waste journey this year.
Potential pledges could be:
- To check the recycling information online and put the right things in the right bin
- To ensure any wrapping paper bought this year can be recycled
- To learn how to compost at home,
- To get a separate recycling bin in the bathroom for all those plastic bottles and cardboard tubes
- To tell 5 people that aerosol cans can go into the recycling bin at home
Once they have decided on their pledge Veolia and Nottinghamshire County Council are asking all participants to share their pledge online using the hashtag #NottsRecycles and encourage more people to take part.
Join with me this January in making a Notts Recycles pledge, and in return Veolia will donate £1 for every pledge to my chosen charity for the year My Sight Nottinghamshire.
