E for Good

In 2011, I set up E For Good, with Melinda Watson .We’re campaigning to reduce the amount of electrical waste (e-waste) as well as setting up systems to increase repair, reuse and efficient recycling. This is the focus of my work in 2012.

Inspiring E-Waste Company Leads on Re-Use (Oct11)

I went to Grantham to visit a company called EnvironCom .   If I’d been only a year ago, it would have been no different from other E-Waste recycling plants.   Now, it’s very different.   They’re re-using 15% of the stuff they bring in and they aim to increase this to at least 30% within 2 years.  Perhaps even more impressive is that they’ve done this by almost doubling their employees and turning the company from a significant loss to £1m profit, in nine months.  Click here to read my blog about this.
