Explorer Sir Ranulph pledges to do more recycling

WORLD famous explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who lives on Exmoor, near Exford, has become the latest celebrity to sign up to the Somerset Waste Partnership’s ‘Pledge to Recycle’.
Sir Ranulph (pictured) has pledged to help reduce the ‘mountain’ of waste created each year in the UK by making greater efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle his waste.
He chose to give his support to the campaign and to sign up to the pledge online.
Sir Ranulph said: “I know how important it is to look after our environment.
“Recycling is an easy and effective way for us all to do our bit and I for one have joined up and pledged to recycle.”
The ‘Pledge to Recycle’ campaign was launched last year by Somerset cricketers Marcus Trescothick and Neil Edwards, and aims to encourage people to reuse, reduce, and recycle their household waste.
‘Pledgers’ can choose to receive a regular ‘e-recycle’ newsletter providing hints and tips on reducing and recycling household waste.
The newsletter also features competitions offering a range of environmentally-friendly prizes.
Councillor Nigel Woollcombe-Adams, chairman of the Somerset Waste Partnership said: “Over 2,300 people have already signed up across Somerset, and we believe that it is a great way for residents to be kept informed on all the new recycling schemes that will be coming up throughout the year.”
