Make, mend, share and value what you own.
Did you know that 4/5th of Scotland’s carbon emissions are caused by the heat and energy required to grow, make, process, transport and provide goods and materials? (Zero Waste Scotland, 2021).
This is only made worse by the fact that we can be so quick to throw away things made using precious energy and resources, from food and clothes to everything in between.
It is part of our mission that we should all better value resources and we are here to help support you in doing so! At the moment, we are reducing food waste in local households, schools and shops, promoting sustainable fashion in all of its various forms and so much more. It may seem daunting at first, but doing a little can help a whole lot, so why not take part in our #SussYourFood food waste challenge, join our sustainable fashion group, join our Facebook group Swap Shop Kirrie, check out our Recycling Directory or order some reusable period products from our friends at Free Period Angus?!
