From the desk of Recycling Heaven

That’s how Giving World Online was described in yesterday’s feature in the Leicester Mercury which went on to say it makes imminent sense to use those mountains of surplus to plug the poverty gap – saving millions of tonnes of good stuff being dumped into landfill in the bargain.

By hooking up the supply of surplus with the demand businesses can:

o Reduce business surplus to landfill

o Achieve environmental and social responsibility targets at no cost

o Reduce storage, disposal and administrative costs

o Enable SME’s to participate effectively and easily in CSR

At the same time every registered business account has access to dynamic updated information showing:

o Value of goods redistributed

o Environmental impact in terms of volume of waste redirected from landfill

o Number of disadvantaged people helped

o Types of charities and people helped

And of course there is that feel good factor that you have played your part in the community by:

o Supporting local communities

o enhancing the voluntary sector's reach by providing ‘access to excess’

o Benefit from an improved profile through opportunities for publicity 

o helping the many thousands at the margins of society, enabling them to rebuild their lives

And amazingly this week we have ‘recycled’ hospital consumables worth 88k and prevented 1000kgs going to landfill courtesy of Eden Medical in Edinburgh. Moira at Eden Medical shares our vision and subscribes to our motto of ‘Waste not Want not’. Thank you Moira……..
