We are big fans of Karen and her work with @TheRubbishDiet, so it’s great to see how active and involved she has been with #RecycleWeek. She’s already been on @BBCLondon949 talking about recycling, and her tweets about recycling loo rolls on Virgin Trains will have reached a huge commuter audience! Her advice to businesses: “If you're a manufacturer, #recycleweek
is the perfect time to rethink your packaging *and* its labelling too.”

These upcycling specialists have been working hard to show that recycling comes in many different forms. For some, it is putting the bottles and paper out for collection, but for some, it is art, it is furniture and it is being savvy with materials!
