Lifestylers’ crusade for a greener future

by Valpak Limited | Nov 03, 2011
Lifestylers never cease to amaze us with their determination to make a positive impact within their local communities; this year has been no different as our teams have passionately crusaded for green issues.

To make this possible, we have worked in partnership with Valpak, who have supported Lifestyle’s Recycling Challenge by challenging teams to reduce, recycle and reuse items; and as a result what an amazing difference they have made.

With a little imagination, teams have undertaken a fabulous array of projects from making clocks from recyclable material found around the home, to undertaking large recycling campaigns and finding new homes for unwanted items such as books, CDs, blankets and towels.

All in all, many people, communities and animals have benefited as a result of teams’ work diverting as much waste from landfill by giving it a new lease of life!

Nigel Tomlinson, Commercial Manager, Valpak, said:

“Valpak are delighted to be involved in Lifestyle’s reduce, reuse, recycle initiative. Through our recycle-more website, we promote the importance of reusing and recycling waste or unwanted items and packaging, and are therefore pleased to support an initiative that helps us to communicate these messages to the local community.”

“Many people are not fully aware of the reuse and recycling routes that are available to them and some don’t know what they need do to be more environmentally friendly. We hope that this initiative will help people in Humberside to realise that there are a number of steps that they can take to reduce their impact on the environment.”

An announcement will be made shortly of teams who have made it through to the prestigious Lifestyle Awards taking place at the Hull City Hall on the 16th November. Valpak will also be rewarding one team’s endeavours at the awards.
