Recycling – we hear about it all the time, but why should we recycle, where does it go and how can we all do a little more?
Well, this week on my ‘Living Green, Loving Saving’ radio series on BBC Radio Nottingham, I’ve got the very answers you are looking for. From recycled products including recycled glass insulation, to recycling DVD’s for charity, Swhopping and National Zero Waste Week. Plus, how you can recycle whilst grabbing a piece of Olympic history.
To find out more, tune in to my ‘Living Green, Loving Saving‘ series with Richard Spurr on BBC Radio Nottingham – only 5 days left to listen! Starts around 3.21
