Electronic Recycling Australia

By Anne Bunning
Thought I’d let you know about Electronic Recycling Australia’s (ERA) bins (branded Unplug N’Drop) for anything vaguely electronic. There are 23 Unplug N Drop bins around metropolitan Adelaide, as well as several rural locations around SA.
Depositing all your electronic stuff is free and they really take anything from the batteries inside the radio to CDs, mobiles, cables, mouses, to the more obvious things like laptops and TVs. The best thing I saw were the insides of traffic lights – the arrows and the body shapes. The basic rule is – if it is domestic, plugs into a power point, uses a charger or is powered by battery ERA will take it.

Knitting with colours

As the cooler weather sets in it is a good time to turn your hand to the woolley crafts.  At the next One Planet Market (Saturday 17 May 2014 at 10.30am) we have Linley who will guide us through how to knit with colours. She will show some techniques for creating an individual style, even if you have never knitted before.

Bring along some/ lots of your old leftovers of wool / yarn, preferably a mix of colours you like, maybe some textures and fine wools and some knitting needles.  Linley will then take us through how to share and mix colours.  The workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced knitters so come along, share expertise and support others as well as try something a bit different.

Get excited about a new project for winter!
