PASS IT ON WEEK
Pass it on Week is coming soon - 11-19 March 2017. More information will follow shortly, but read on for some ideas of how you could get involved by organising an event.
Remember re-use should be happening all year round, not just during pass it on week, so please keep encouraging people to keep things in use for as long as possible by passing on, swapping, sharing, upcycling or donating things, whilst thinking of something special you can do for Pass it on Week.
