It’s my favourite part of the week – time to share the link love!
Each story will help us move towards a zero waste future by addressing the reduce, reuse, recycle theme.
Over on Growing things and making things, Rachel has found a new use for old breadcrumbs.
I was attracted to this post because I invented my own ‘bread crusts’ recipe the other week, but I’m always on the lookout for other people’s recipes.
Check out Rachel’s brown bread ice cream recipe.
One of our regular readers, Michelle Morgan runs Eco-Centricity; an environmental arts company making recycled crafts.
Recently some of her plans came into fruition and she launched her Eco-Centricity Scrap Store in Sway, Hampshire.
Scrap and waste materials will be collected and made available for re-use to local groups and individuals for a small membership fee. Non members can also pick up scrap for a small charge. The scrap store is not a charity, but aims to be a more than profit organisation; working with local business, like minded groups and voluntary organisations, to create a cleaner, greener future.
