Just a drop in the Ocean

When our local village shop stopped supplying free plastic carrier bags to customers , the EGGS Steering Group decided to order some eco-friendly bags from the Good Bag Company. We are very proud of our Buckle's Wood Bags. They are strong, long lasting, made from jute and can be recycled or composted at the end of their useful life! What's more, the wide gusset makes them easy to fill in the shop. Why "just a drop in the ocean"? Partly because plastic debris is forming a floating mass in the Pacific Ocean and damaging the wild life in the sea and surrounding coastal areas. Partly because, saying NO to plastic carrier bags will not save the planet.

Let's hope that the Government is serious about their proposed green revolution. Our World desperately needs URGENT ACTION.

Just for June

Mid Suffolk and Babergh District Councils are organising the Bra Recycling scheme below. I thought it was a good idea, so an appropriate bin will appear at the recycling centre soon. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We need your help Ladies!

As part of Recycle Week (June 2nd – 9th), we need your help to “recycle one more thing”, and the Suffolk Waste Partnership are encouraging Bra Recycling!

As well as helping the environment (the bras are sent to West Africa where they are reused and recycled), the project will also raise money for Macmillan.
So, dig out all your unwanted, unflattering, and unfitting bras (and encourage your Mum, Sister, and female friends and colleagues to rummage too!) and bring them in.
