#Mayplasticfree challenge

NLvoorelkaar

We want to challenge you to use less plastic this month (and hopefully beyond!). 🚮 Plastic. It is everywhere. The supermarket alone is full of the disposable variety. And although plastic packaging is being recycled more and more often, the vast majority still disappears into our environment. Unfortunately, not only as 'normal' waste, but also in the form of tiny pieces of plastic in our drinking water, the air and also in our bodies. This is because plastic never ever expires. 🚫 Should all efforts come from the consumer? No definitely not. But by ignoring plastic packaging en masse, we can show producers, shops and the government that something needs to change. Would you like to contribute? Then join us in #Mayplastic free. Click on the 'I'm in' button below and we will give you a lot of tips on how you can reduce plastic consumption! 👇🏼

Caps for guide dogs for the blind

KNGF geleidehonden

Did you know that plastic caps can be valuable? At least for us at KNGF Guide Dogs. We receive compensation for every kilogram of caps collected. So instead of throwing away the caps from soft drinks and milk cartons, why not hand them in at one of our collection points? By doing so, you're not only supporting the training of our guide dogs, but also helping to protect the environment. Together, all the caps collected have generated tens of thousands of euros. Here's how it works: Step 1: Send us a message expressing your interest in participating, and we'll provide you with all the necessary information. Step 2: Collect as many caps as possible! Step 3: Drop off the caps at a collection point near you. That's it! You've made a significant impact, benefiting both the guide dogs and the environment. It's a win-win situation! Thank you very much for your support, and good luck with your collection efforts! #challenge

Donate your old sleeping bag for the homeless

NLvoorelkaar

Tens of thousands of people will sleep in the cold tonight. Donate old sleeping bags and help the homeless through the night! Sheltersuit turns it into a wind and waterproof jacket with a zip-on sleeping bag, for anyone who is forced to sleep outside. ⚡ You will do this Every sleeping bag counts when you're literally out in the cold. So clean up your attic and that of others and collect all old sleeping bags. You can donate these at all Het Goed thrift stores in your area. Note: not every sleeping bag is usable. These are good: • Synthetic thick and thin sleeping bags; • Preferably washed and should be of somewhat good looking; • The zipper may be broken; • The liner must not be broken; • Down/wool sleeping bags cannot be donated, unfortunately. You can hand in your old sleeping bags with every acceptance of goods at one of the 28 thrift stores of Het Goed. 🌙 For this you make all the difference Sheltersuit helps homeless people and refugees who are forced to sleep outside. Due to the increasing demand from aid organizations at home and abroad, no less than 16,500 sleeping bags are needed. By handing in a sleeping bag to Het Goed you make it possible that our social workshops can continue to make Sheltersuits and thus create permanent work. Will you lend a hand? You really make a difference with it and it also makes your attic happy. Thank you in advance!
