Do you ever look in your garden shed or garage, under the bed or on top of the wardrobe and wonder where all that ‘stuff’ comes from?
Well when I say ‘trash’ I’m perhaps not being 100% accurate because I was never going to throw this ‘trash’ in the bin. Even adding it to my recycling was out of the question, even though the items could be recycled along with glass jars and bottles. No, the subject of this post was not complete ‘trash’, but was something I wasn’t getting use of right now and I felt enough is enough. I needed to find this treasure a new home.
So in September I enrolled at Keele University as a student on the BSc Environment and Sustainability course. Having toyed with the idea of returning to education to get my degree, I found this course on my doorstep and it looked amazing. I’ve just finished my first Semester of modules (the exams remain) but my experience so far has exceeded every expectation.

As part of Go Green Week, Keele University held The Big Green Swish. Now if you’ve never been swishing before (which I hadn’t) then you’re in for a treat.
