Local Gorbals Charity Saving the Planet and your Purse

Visited one of our new EEC Members today, Glasgow Play- Resource Association WOW what an amazing place with great resources for all you crafty people whether you’re school, nursery, church student community play group  or individual looking for craft materials this is the place to go.

There’s a Craft Shop with all sorts of crafty materials, much cheaper than you’d pay in one of these chain stores. I did love the Scrap Store though lots to get your craft juices flowing at a very low cost.

GPA are doing their bit to help save our planet too, I urge you to think before you throw out Don’t Dump, Donate! – GPA will take your donations of anything that’s clean waste. Read the article on 8 June about what they’ve saved going to landfill, so inspirational

I love that nothing goes to waste ranging from bottles & bottle tops to cable reels and everything in between, I dropped off toilet/kitchen roll tubes, plastic bottle tops, clean glass jars, tealight holders, yoga matt and old business pop up banner. i’d love to know what someone does with all that? They have some great ideas for things to make like orange beanie hats into pumpkins – check out their FB Page!

The amazing part is this is run pretty much by volunteers and boy do they work hard learned so much about behind the scenes and the checks they need to do before items go to shelf!

Please Donate your clean waste & Shop for your crafty stuff and so much check their FB Page for updates Glasgow Play Resource Association

If you have spare time with bags of energy and a belief in their cause to reduce waste you may want to get in touch to volunteer.

They are seeking funding to run creative workshops for the young and elderly community so if you are an organisation looking for a cause for your Corporate Social Responsibility
