Well here we are now in the final week of our campaign with only 7 days to go!! We are currently sitting at 22% of our goal so we will be doing a lot of work this week to bring us up to where we need to be.

There are a few partnerships coming on board this week that we hope will boost the number of backers that we need to make this project a success. Right now though we really need YOU, because YOU believe in this project and what it can achieve. 

Here is how your backing is already helping:

1. Reducing waste from landfill and oceans - the more people we inspire with Retrash, the more waste globally will be reused and reduced. These images below are devastating, but this is what YOU are taking action against by backing this project - THANK YOU!

2. Inspiring new ideas - by teaching people how we can reuse waste, we start to think about how we can reduce it by purchasing less, and where possible buy more sustainable products with less packaging.

We CAN inspire change with creative ideas and solutions together. 

There are only 7 days left to raise money to print this book, without funding we cannot do it. There are still two more ways you can help this project:

1. Consider increasing your pledge amount - if you have pledged $35 previously, you can increase your pledge by another $65 and get your name printed in the book on a special thank you page to mark your commitment to inspiring a better world. If you have previously pledged $100, we now have a new reward level at $175 where instead of 1 book you now get 5 copies, a great gift for birthdays etc, and you also get 2 x names printed in the book (you and a friend or company name).

2. Share the project with your friends and family - if you could please re-share this project with friends and family letting them know that there are only 7 days left, we stand a real chance of getting enough people behind this project to make it happen.  

Thank YOU for your support, in backing this project and for helping to spread the word!

All the best

Nathan
