This talk series is organised by Kilkenny County Council to highlight Reuse Month this October, a national initiative to promote reuse in the community. Reuse is about valuing our stuff, by using and reusing it for as long and as often as possible.  This avoids the need to extract raw materials, manufacture and distribute new stuff, and avoids waste thereby cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions. #greeningkilkenny
