North London residents can get rid of their clutter and
unwanted household items and take home what they really need at a
Stuff for Free event being held over two weekends in June and
Healthy Planet's Stuff for Free initiative is being run in
partnership with North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to raise
awareness of environmental issues and reduce the amount of unwanted
goods going to landfill.
Shaylesh Patel, founder of Healthy Planet said:
"Stuff for Free encourages re-use and reduces landfill so
you'll be helping the environment and helping yourself. This is an
exciting development and the largest scale one in the country. With
a greater number of households in North London we are hoping to
exceed our last Stuff for Free event in West London where 1,100
people and community groups helped us to redistribute, for re-use,
over 24 tonnes of stuff."
