Brightening up Portsmouth Glass Banks!

If you’re going to be in Portsmouth, keep an eye out for some new, space invader themed glass banks. There are six of them, and if you send in a photograph of yourself with them, you could win a share of £250 worth of Love to Shop vouchers.

Recycle Week message matters

Glass is great when it comes to recycling. All bottles and jars are 100% recyclable and just about every part of the country has a system in place for households to recycle their glass packaging when it’s finished with.

Recycle Week message matters

What goes around, comes around.

It’s Recycle Week and this year’s theme - What goes around comes around - inspires us to enjoy the benefits of creating a circular economy - where we make, use and recycle. This is in contrast to the unsustainable make, use, discard linear economy. Recycle Week is great opportunity to learn more, find ways to recycle more, and get more people involved.
