Reasons to Recycle
Reuse is often confused with recycling, but they are really quite different.
Recycling takes a product and makes it into a new version of the same thing or something else.
Reuse is simply changing the user of the product or the way that product is used. This prolongs the life of the product and retains the value of it for longer. This is good for the environment as it displaces the need to use raw or recycled materials.
You can reuse by donating, selling or buying reusable things. Some common examples are Freegle, charity shops, second hand shops, car boot sales, free ads, eBay etc.
Freegle helps people to pass on things they no longer need. Using Freegle reduces waste and clutter, helps your community, saves money and benefits the environment.
