Recycling of resources and materials has become an important element of modern living and a Car Boot Sale is probably one of the most successful centres for recycling in the community.
The modern world has sadly become characterised as a 'throw-away society' and it is hoped that car boot sales go some way towards reversal of this trend.
Obviously, the earth's resources are finite. If an item can be re-used or it's constituent materials can be re-cycled then clearly, any activity which encourages this is to be applauded.
At Pennant, many parents have been observed buying toys and clothing for their children which cost a fraction of the new price. Once used tools and equipment, household items and leisure items are offered for sale to be employed by a second user rather than being thrown away.
Benefits to the environment are obvious, monetary savings to low-income groups are significant and there are other spin-offs such as the social element where people come together on a regular basis.
Less obvious benefits include spending time in the open countryside and an opportunity for families and all age groups to engage with each other.
