October is National Reuse Month!

Reuse Month 2017 is part of a national environmental initiative to educate people about reusing end of life products and materials. It aims to encourage people to repurpose, refurbish, donate, sell or repair old items giving them a new lease of life and adding value. Kildare County Council is hosting a programme of events during Reuse Month in October 2017 including workshops, talks and demonstrations that promote all aspects of reusing products. The aim is to inspire everyone to actively engage in reusing everyday products on a practical level and to make sure that these items are still valuable. for more information, click here: Reuse
