Charity shops are a somewhat British institution, and not found to the same extent else where in the world. The aim of these high street shops is to raise funds for the charity that run them. The products they sell (books, clothes, bric-à-brac, etc) are donated by the public and most of the staff are volunteers.

Dilbert: Hi, Noriko. Is something wrong?
Noriko: Duhhhh!
Noriko: You adults have totally messed up the planet!! Where's the accountability??!
Noriko: You know our implied social contract! You take care of the kids, then we take care of you when you're old. That's how it's supposed to work.
Dilbert: Well, I.......
Noriko: The deal is OFF!!

“combine it with
a journey that you
would make anyway”

If you are dropping off material for recycling by car, please combine it with a journey that you would make anyway. (The environmental benefits of small scale recycling are often so slight as to be lost by making an extra car journey.)
