'Skip The Tip' and give your trash another life

Words by Abi Scaife

A campaign is encouraging people to embrace the circular economy this January - and Skip the Tip!

Skip the Tip?

#SkipTheTip is a new campaign by YoungPlanet, created by parents Jason and Emma Ash. YoungPlanet is a platform and app designed to ‘declutter, give joy, save the planet’, by encouraging people to embrace the circular economy.

So how does it work?

Just like many apps and websites that help you sell your unwanted items, YoungPlanet allows you to create listings of items you no longer need. People can then browse the app, request an item they want, and get it completely for free!

Not only does it mean people are getting items for free, it means we aren’t creating waste in the same way.

YoungPlanet has already helped over 150,000 people save £1 million worth of children's items from landfill by encouraging families to make cashless exchanges.
