Jana's Journey Through Recycling in West Berkshire


    ‘Welcome to the new edition of this Guest Blog. I am a full-time working mum of 2 boys and a published novelist of ‘The Ninth Cross’ by my pen name J. Karst. I get involved in trying that little bit I can in saving the environment for the future generations.’

             It has been mad but very much worth it. Only today I helped the UPS guy to pick up the weeks-worth and it accounted to all together 117.8 Kg. To top it up who huge load of metal was taken to the scrapyard and hopefully I should have the figures soon.

            Overall, it was a successful week. Not to mention that I have also joined another recycling scheme – Ferrero Roche. This scheme accepts all rigid trays, the inside and outside packaging in one lot. I do admit, I am very capable recycling the chocolate part as when I got a box for Mother’s Day it was gone within minutes.

            The little box of coins and unwanted jewellery is filling up nicely so soon I will be posting that to the Alzeimers Society. All the little things make the difference. I finally feel like I am doing little bit more again for the environment and charities.

            In the end I share the lovely email I received from Canine Partners:

‘I wanted to let you know that we received the £1,475.42 payment through from Terracycle, thank you so much for all the time and effort you put in to sorting the recycling. It is amazing knowing this donation has a double benefit and is stopping the items going to landfill!
In the current crisis we appreciate your support more than ever. Your kind donation allows us to support our partners at a time when they need it most, as they are facing uncertainty with greater isolation and health concerns. In these circumstances a canine partner is a real lifeline. Your donation will help us to continue to train dogs, create and maintain partnerships and help secure our future within uncertain times ahead.
Once again, thank you for supporting Canine Partners as we all continue to work our way through these unusual and unprecedented times. It means so much to us.’


This message if for you all – a huge thank you for helping the environment and the charities. Funds building in our TerraCycle Account, it will be soon that more will be transferred to such valuable cause…
