Jeremy Irons Supports Community R4C Recycling Project

Jeremy Irons has lent his support to a new environmental initiative to build a recycling plant in Gloucestershire:  Trash to Treasure

Jeremy is backing the new Trash to Treasure initiative which has been set up by Community R4C.

The new green venture’s aims are to promote waste-reduction and work toward a sustainable circular economy.

Its first priority will be to back an ambitious project to build a waste recycling plant as an alternative to controversial plans for waste incineration in the area.

Mr Irons said: “When I presented Trashed in Stroud last May, it was clear that campaigners against the proposed incinerator were exhausted by years of a struggle where democracy had failed, concern for the environment had been dismissed and the will of the people consistently ignored.

“When I urged them to “re-gird their loins and do something”, I aimed to encourage continued resistance.

“I’m delighted to discover that the community has actually gone several steps further and created a credible, healthier alternative solution that poses a genuine threat to the toxic monster they’ve been fighting.

“This project demonstrates clearly that where the system fails, the people can step up and do better.

“Waste is all of our responsibility, and it’s high time we started taking that responsibility.

“This community has, and will be healthier for it in more ways than one. It’s a precedent that needs setting – and following.”

All funds raised through the share scheme will support community environmental projects.

The first of these will be the recycling centre, which CR4C say will be far cheaper, greener, smaller and better for the community than the Javelin Park incinerator.

The plant will use advanced MBHT (mechanical, biological and heat treatment) technology, which experts claim can put more than 90 per cent of the county’s waste to valuable use instead of burning it. Local residents can now pre-register for shares in Community R4C.

People can register their interest with a pledge of as little as £100.

Community R4C board director, Sue Oppenheimer said: “By investing in this community-led initiative, we can all directly help our local environment.

Details of the event can be found at http://www.communityr4c.com/community-share-offer/

Anyone interested in the share launch can find out more on Crowdfunder, on http://www.CommunityR4C.com or by emailing admin@communityr4c.com
