Why #Every2ndcounts this May
Over 10 million items are sent to landfill every year. A third of these – up to 3 million – could be given a second chance. It’s what members of the Reuse Network do every day.
At Changing Lives in Cheshire we are part of the Reuse Network. We’re a group of over 200 charities and social enterprises brought together by a collective belief that giving household items and furniture a second chance is better for our customers, our communities, and our environment.
We’ve helped over 1.5 million people, saving them almost £500m and helping them to live better. We’ve helped to avoid 125,000 tonnes of C02 polluting the planet
