There are so many projects about to save this and that, various charities asking for help and donations, and of course recycling programmes. ALL of them are fantastic and normally have one, or a team of enthusiastic people behind them. ALL of these ideas need help, but lets be truthful about this, there are only so many you can support. In our family we have each chosen one charity that we would go out of our way to help. We all decided on a different one which is great as we some times “employ” each other for help within the family for our chosen charity!
Another time, another blog I will tell you who we support.
There are also a few things we are passionate about as a family, one being recycling. We have all the bins “parked” beside the house for paper, plastic, tins and glass as we are most particular about our rubbish!
Another “little” thing we do (and you can do this too… if you enjoy tea and coffee from Taylor’s) is to save the little tokens from TAYLOR’S product, to simply HELP SAVE THE RAINFOREST! It’s really easy and costs one sheet of paper and a postage stamp, what’s that, nothing these days! You can find the coupons on the bottom of YORKSHIRE TEABAG cartons, and on the side of TAYLOR’S FRESH GROUND COFFEE packets.
Have a look at the website they have specially done for this project, visit http://www.yorkshirerainforestproject.co.uk
Just collect the tokens, down load a collecting sheet from the website. I have asked extended family and friends to save their tokens too! Now I have such a nice little wad of filled in sheets that I am ready to pop in the post to TAYLOR’S. This is what they say:-
“Help us save THE RAIN FOREST… By collecting these tokens you can help save the RAINFOREST. For every four you save 50p goes to the YORKSHIRE RAINFOREST PROJECT. Send your completed token sheets to Yorkshire Tea, Admail 819, Harrogate, HG1 1AZ” For more information contact http://www.yorkshiretea.co.uk or phone 0500 418898 or Betty’s and Taylor’s of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG2 7LD.
As well as this super idea that TAYLOR’S have organised, we all benefit from a GREAT cup of coffee and a SMASHING cup of tea!
