Walker’s Crisps recently announced that they are now accepting crisp packets being sent back to them, to be recycled into products such as garden benches and watering cans.
As part of the scheme, Walkers have invited people to send the packets back to themselves; but as they need them returned in large quantities (400 or more), they are encouraging people to start collections together.
PECT is now collecting packets at our office and we’re encouraging our supporters to send their empty packets to us. Walkers will accept packets from any brand of crisps, but cannot accept food packets of any other items (not even popcorn bags!).
Once you’ve saved up some packets, you can either drop them off or send them to us at the following address, in an old bag or envelope clearly marked ‘Crisps C/O PECT’:
PECT, The Green House, 4-6 Cowgate, Peterborough, PE1 1NA.
It would be very helpful if you could either count up or let us know approximate numbers of crisp packets when they are dropped off at the office. Please also ensure packets are supplied flat and not put inside one another.
You never know, your next watering can could be made out of the packets you recycled. Why not spread the word to your friends and family to help work towards a greener and tidier community?
