RediVivus - Environmental Tips REUSE …. REUSE…REUSE

The mantra Reduce Reuse Recycle is central to what we at Redivivus is all about.

Over many years manufacturers and the media have spent years and hundreds of thousands of word and countless pounds trying to persuade us that buying new is always better and that we can't get left behind with older "un fashionable" products.
