Turn your mobile phone into a belay stake

Turn your phone into a belay stake.

The BMC printer cartridge and mobile phone appeal has raised nearly £7,000 for the Access and Conservation Trust so far - that's enough for 180 belay stakes. Help us continue with the brown envelope in the latest issue of Summit.

There are lots of things you can do with your empty ink cartridge and mobile phones. But we think one of their best uses is to send them into EAH recycling. Every cartridge and mobile phone is much appreciated as the BMC receives a generous donation for each one.  

Look out for the brown Freepost envelope in the latest issue of Summit. 

We've partnered with EAH recycling for several years now and so far have raised nearly £7,000 for the BMC Access and Conservation Trust. 

This is significant figure and can make a real difference to our work:

£7,000 would buy a tree surgeon for 9 days, 35 stiles, 180 belay stakes or resurface 1,000m of path with locally-sourced materials. 

A huge thank you to everyone who has taken part so far. 

For extra envelopes please call EAH Recycling on 01473 658161.

And don't forget: even if you haven't got anything to recycle at the moment, you can still donate to ACT here

£38.80 for a belay stake? what are they made from?
28/09/2012
Considering you might be trusting your life to just one of these things, £38.80 seems like a reasonably good buy. Call me odd, but I'd prefer to hang off one of these than one costing a few quid.
