Go Green with your Chronicle.Byline: By Amy Hunt
Since April 12 we have been asking you, our readers, to get behind our Go Green environment campaign.
We launched Go Green to try to make a difference to the environment of the North East.
Our mottos are Renew, Reuse reuse - Using code developed for one application program in another application. Traditionally achieved using program libraries. Object-oriented programming offers reusability of code via its techniques of inheritance and genericity. , Recycle, and Think Global, Act Local, and that is what we want everyone in the North East to do.
We started our drive to get more people involved in recycling, saving energy in the home and at work, community clean-ups and other initiatives to make the North East a place to be proud of. We want to improve regional recycling rates, currently among the lowest in the country, clean up fly-tipping hot spots hot spots

These are big aims, but ones we feel we can meet with the help of Chronicle readers.
The main purpose of Go Green is to show everyone how their small actions can make a big difference where the environment is concerned.
Our campaign was launched by Environment Secretary and South Shields South Shields, city (1991 pop. 86,488), South Tyneside, NE England, at the mouth of the Tyne River. It is a significant port.
