WHAT A WASTE

Every day all over the world more and more waste is being produced. It all needs to be disposed of some how. There is a limit to the number of landfill sites available to fill with rubbish.

We can reduce the amount of waste we produce by reusing and recycling it.

SO ARE YOU DOING YOUR BIT - REUSE IT

I have put together list of household items that can be reused for other purposes instead of being discarded. By reusing unwanted items you will also save money.
