Trading standards held an amnesty on electric blankets over the winter. 300 old blankets were traded in for new ones to ensure the safety of our senior citizens.
Untapped Resource supported Trading Standards by taking the old blankets and stripping the wire from the blankets. The wire was recycled and the remaining blankets were donated to local cat and dog homes for use as animal bedding. Not all the blankets could be disassembled or were in a fit state for reuse and had to be disposed off, but 80% were. This stopped them from simply being sent to landfill.
Untapped Resource, supporting Trading Standards and working in harmony with the environment.
