Rethink Waste during Plastic Free July

Rethink Waste during Plastic Free July

Sign up today!

The partnership between Elmbridge Borough Council, Joint Waste Solutions (JWS) and Greenredeem provides residents with a digital platform to encourage waste reduction. The programme is funded by the Surrey Environmental Partnership as one of a number of initiatives to improve waste management and recycling across Surrey.

Residents who sign up will receive a personalised experience, through which they will learn how to reduce waste and get rewarded for doing it. This month the focus is Plastic Free July, with lots of useful tips and advice to help you reduce plastic in your home and find plastic-free alternatives.  

The platform provides fun weekly activities (including videos, quizzes, blogs and pledges) with solutions for how to reduce waste at home and when out and about. By participating in these activities, residents will get rewarded with points. They can use those points to get something back for themselves or donate to their community.

Sign up in July and you will also be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win £300 worth of supermarket vouchers.

There’s something for everyone; other benefits include:

  • Competitions – every few weeks members can enter the prize draw with the chance to win fantastic prizes, such as vouchers, iPads, smart watches or TVs (many of which are eco-friendly, refurbished versions).
  • Charitable donations – points can be turned into cash and donated to local schools and community groups to help fund local environmental projects.
  • Carbon tracker – some waste reduction activities have a direct saving on carbon emissions. The tracker provides members with a better understanding of how their actions reduce the impact on the planet and help fight climate change. Residents can track progress and will receive badges as a reward for their achievements.
  • Zero waste map – members can find places near to them such as water refill stations and charity/second hand shops that will help them reduce, reuse, and recycle more waste in their area.
  • Eco shop and rewards – members can explore Greenredeem approved eco-friendly products and access other online discounts and rewards.
