Uh, OK


  Despite not being awfully sure if we're really 'Waste Activists', preferring the notion of being a 'Waste - Hugely Inspirational Resource Reducer (or WHIRR)', we are happy to pass on the following from those good folk at FoE (we're not the only ones with nifty acronyms):

> WASTE: Ask David Miliband to stop the waste
>
> Dear Waste Activist,
>
> The Government is currently putting the finishing touches to England's new waste strategy. It is also involved in European-level negotiations on a revision to Europe's main waste law, the Waste Framework Directive.
>
> Please email* David Miliband, Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

here


Consider it done. Though he hasn't replied to our last few, mind. Busy, busy!

And having had a quick gander, you may like to pop in a bit about supporting reuse and repair more. Not as good for those box-ticking target-hitters, but even higher on the RE:chain than recycling, and it's all helping the planet in the end, no?

*We should point out that the whole thing is pretty complex, and you should try and get on top of the issues if you can. For us to say it's as simple as being all about burning (be it for energy or not) vs. landfill is not doing the debate many favours. And there are pros and cons coming from a variety of camps.

We do intend to try and wade through it all and have a better opinion soon, but for now (and it's why this is up here), we reckon there's enough gunk in the air without adding more.

Reduce people! Or if you can't, repair and reuse. Then.... recycle.
