Sheryl Crow, Boy George To Giveaway Personal Stuff, Encourage Reuse
If you’ve ever wanted to take part in those auctions for personal celebrity items, but just can’t find the will to open your wallet in the process — take heart! The British equivalent of Freecycle called MySkip is holding a “24-Hour Celebrity Throwaway” next week! Famous folk like Sheryl Crow, Boy George, Ricky Gervais, Cuba Gooding Jr. and more will all be donating things they no longer have a use for. In Boy George’s case, this probably means personal freedom.
“MySkip’s work is a positive initiative using advanced technology to transform the way we view everyday waste,” said Dr. Gary Kendall, Director of Climate Change Programs at SustainAbility. “We encourage people and businesses to look at reuse as an alternative to recycling because by extending the life of products we will not only help reduce the size of our landfills but minimise other environmental issues such as dangerous greenhouse gas emissions.”
