Red Dot Recycling Week 12-14 August 2009

WEDNESDAY 12 August – FRIDAY 14 August 2009 at various venues
Arts organisation Red Dot are staging a recycling week in Liverpool for the second year running. The aim of the recycling week is to raise awareness of how recycling helps to reduce our impact on the environment and encourage individuals to recycle more and recycle better.  All the events are free to attend.

Red Dot are running a series of mainly art-related events as part of this year’s recycling week.

The events will include a field trip to Bidston Materials Recovery Facility ( a top notch recycling centre) on Wednesday 12 August (12-30pm to 2-30pm) – free transport will be provided from Liverpool city centre.
*Please contact Colin to book a place on the mini-bus leaving from outside the Everyman Theatre at 12-30pm.

There is also a  poetry, music and film night at the Liverpool Everyman Third Room on Wednesday 12 August (8pm – 11pm) All performances and screenings will relate to a recycling theme or practice.

A debate will also be held in the Liverpool Everyman Third Room on Thursday 13 August (8pm – 10pm) , where the topic under debate, with a panel of experts on recycling, will be ‘Why does Liverpool have such a poor track record in regard to recycling?’.

The final event of the week will be a recycling swap shop on Saturday 15 August (12pm – 5pm) at the International Gallery in Slater Street, in which people can come along and swap their unwanted items with something they really want!

*Please contact Colin if you want to attend any of these events – free tickets will be sent to you.
