Nick Ede recycles electricals in style on Cyber Monday

Fashion guru Ede is boxing clever with his unwanted electricals.

The cultural expert shared a selfie with his Instagram followers showing him putting a food blender into a Recycle Your Electricals box, after a clear-out of unwanted electricals and other items at his home.

Nick said he’d been inspired by the Recycle Your Electricals Cash In Your Electricals campaign. The campaign, launched in November 2020, is encouraging the public to unleash the financial value locked up in the old electrical equipment many of us have hidden away at home.

“I did a massive sort-out,” Nick told his followers on Cyber Monday, when retailers discount electrical and electronic goods to boost sales.

He said the Cash In Your Electricals campaign had prompted him to “do something with the huge pile of old electricals” he’d found in his house.

“You can make on average £620 per household by selling electricals,” said Nick. “Or you can recycle them like I’m doing.”

The PR expert and star of Sky One’s fashion series Project Catwalk also answered questions about the campaign from his Intagram followers, including how to find their nearest electricals recycling point.
