@sheffhallamuni students Dominic, Max and Oscar have created plant pots made from river waste! Not only are they reusing waste, they're donating 5% of all their sales to charity!

Great work guys! 😊

 <a href=#RecycleYourElectricals You know that drawer full of electrical items you no longer need? The one with the chargers and random cables that have been sat there for months on end...

Why not create some space and recycle it all with @recycleyourelectricals_ 😊 Head on over to their profile for lots of useful info, to find your local drop-off point and claim back that drawer! 🙌" />
We're halfway through  <a href=#PlasticFreeJuly ! We know you already make an effort to use less plastic on a daily basis, but let this be a gentle nudge to encourage you to keep going this month and beyond. ♻ 🌍 Top tip: an easy swap is to invest in a reusable mask. They look cool, save money in the long-term and help to reduce textile waste too - it's a win-win! [image description: animation promoting reusable mask.

🚨 Reminder 🚨 

Baby wipes, make up wipes, cleaning wipes and moist toilet tissues are not recyclable and shouldn’t be flushed down the toilet either (although some labels say they can be!).

You should always throw them in your rubbish bin.
