The Glasgow Green Map
I've just found the most fantastic site and Alburt will love it. Alburt is a self confessed charity shop lover. He's always buying books, board games and Jigsaws [there for Gav].
Anyway I've just discovered Glasgow Green Map a fantastic site set up to produce a green map of Glasgow, highlighting all the Charity shops and reuse organisations in the city.
'The first Glasgow wide Green Map, marketed under the eco brand name dear green place, has been published. 20,000 copies of the map will be distributed throughout the city over the next month.This 'Reuse' themed map features over a 120 charity shops and community based enterprises that provide people with the opportunity to donate and buy reusable house hold goods.This is the first time that information about these opportunities has been collated and published.
Each year in Glasgow over 145,000 items that could be reused currently go to landfill. This project aims to encourage people to find an alternative way of disposing of these valuable resources and support the community based initiatives that provide these services.
