Reuse it or lose it: turning Ireland into a no-waste economy

On this side of the pond—we call it #Zerowaste—but #Nowaste is fine too!  Reuse, Upcycling, Refashion, Makedo—it all works to get us to a #circulareconomy. Until we design for #cradle2cradle, re-imagining #waste is the best stewardship for the Earth.  Storytelling and reframing our consumption (or lack thereof) is the key.

From the article:

“We are asking people to drop off quality donations and community heirlooms to their nearest recycling centre for these Story of Things tours. The storytellers will talk about the life-cycle of objects from the resources used to make them to how they were reworked for reuse,”

Claire Downey, national co-ordinator of Community Reuse Network Ireland
