Adessi 10:10 - Saving an Absolute Packet

Alex D has been doing a bit of research and although you can’t actually recycle crisp packets you can send them to a charity down south who then send them off to the Philippines (in a boat that’s already going) and they turn them into woven purses and hand bags – and by sending your crisp packets apparently this means that the children of the women working in the factory can go to school.

You can read all about it here:

As a bit of a crisp addict herself, Al will be collecting her bags and sending them off once she's got a (in her words) 'canny collection of them' rather than just binning them – so if people want to start putting their empty bags in one of the recycling boxes downstairs she'll post them too.

Anyone who wants to do the same, the address is:

Philippine Community Fund
5 Gresley Gardens
Hedge End
SO30 2XG

She's also found quite an interesting site which gives handy tips on to recycle/reuse things – although we're a tad sceptical on some of the crisp packet suggests! Make of them what you will…
