Reduce, re-use, recycle was the main message of this month’s Sustainable Saturday in Honiton

The Transition Town Honiton event in the Mackarness Hall featured community recycling scheme Waste Not Want Not, a clothes swap, and special guest Cathy Karniewicz, Mrs Recycle, was also in attendance.

Cathy was showing visitors how to make windmills out of items that would have otherwise been thrown away. East Devon District Council’s Street Scene were also on hand to give people information on recycling.

The next Sustainable Saturday takes place on Saturday, September 20, and will focus on the theme of Harvest.

Anyone interested in volunteering to help with the Sustainable Saturday events is urged to contact Sharon Pavey by emailing sdpavey@gmail.com or calling 07447 597390.
