news > 20/02/2017 - Spring Awakens

I hope we all enjoyed the unseasonably mild weather this weekend. The temperature has even been in double digit figures. The spring flowers taking full advantage and are joyfully poking their heads out, unfurling their flowers in celebration.

Sadly, the prognosis for UK cites is not altogether rosy however, as the mild weather, it is emerging, has contributed to the terrible pollution our cities are facing. Some of our towns even exceeded their entire year's allowance of pollution by mid-January.

While businesses, commuters and politicians try and reach consensus of the best way forward, we thought we would take this opportunity to remind our partners old and new that we take your business surplus, saving it from landfill, a known cause of pollution, along with your transportation and storage heating and lighting costs, all adding to pollution levels.

Every year tonnes of perfectly new and usable goods needlessly end up in landfill, creating these harmful environmental pollutants as well as hitting industry where it hurts most: in the purse with landfill taxes.

Giving World takes unused surplus and uses it to create a wide variety of solutions to aid those in poverty and social exclusion. Giving World doesn't charge for the goods and we distribute across the UK.

Despite Giving World's successes, we are saving less than 1% of reusable goods from landfill each year.

If Giving World could help more UK businesses donate their surplus, and recognise the benefits of donating it, we could reach 92% of the 13.4 million people living in poverty in the UK today and significantly contribute to saving the four million tonnes of CO2e generated per year by landfill.

Because our reach is national, we are able to see where need is most acute. Our data shows that the North, and especially the North East, has critical requirement for our goods.

Conversely, the South East and London generate the highest amount of GDP per capita in the UK, and have the highest concentration of businesses (and potential surplus) in the UK.

Increasing reuse could reduce UK greenhouse gas emissions by about four million tonnes of CO2e per year by 2020. The sector identified as having the greatest carbon saving potential through reuse was textiles; products that Giving World's beneficiaries have the greatest need for.

If you know of a business that might donate their surplus and end of line stock, please let them and us know they can register here.
