We're so excited to have featured in the new and exciting celebrity environmental documentary, aired last night on Channel 4 called ‘Celebrity Trash Monsters: What’s Your Waste Size?’ The 90 minute special, hosted by comedian Jon Richardson and produced by Naked (a Fremantle label), highlighted important climate change issues and aimed to inspire three celebrities and viewers to reduce their waste output.
It was great to be involved with the celebrities coming to our Luton site for their final weigh-in. We hope it helps spread awareness how much waste is generated by common household items.
The show which featured former footballer John Barnes, television personality Kerry Katona and former supermodel Jodie Kidd, was hosted by comedian and eco-activist Jon Richardson. The format of the show involved each of the celebrities ‘wearing their waste’ in specially designed trash suits - forcing them to take account of how much waste is generated by the items they and their families consume each and every day.
Celebrity Trash Monsters is part of a series of Channel 4 programmes focused on the issues of climate change, global warming and plastic pollution. We invited the celebrities round our Materials Recycling Facility during their challenge to sift through their waste and identify items that are most suitable for recycling. The show was lot's of fun to be involved with and we hope it will help to spread awareness on an important topic of waste management and recycling.
Phil Gudgeon, commented on the : “Cawleys has long been an avid advocate of waste reduction and viewing waste as a resource. As a local family recycling business based in Luton, we are delighted to have had been involved in such a high-profile TV show and to be helping spread the message about how important it is to reduce waste and recycle whenever possible for the sake our planet.”
