By buying recycled products you help save valuable resources, reduce the amount of waste being throuwn away, conserve energy and increase the demand for recycled materials.
The more products we produce from recycled materials in the UK, the better for the environment. We could reduce our imports and the carbon emissions associated with transporting new goods over long distances!
You will be surprised at how many recycled products are available nowadays. You can get anything from garden furniture to toilet and kitchen rolls, pencils, kitchenware, clothes and paper.
