To try to work out were we can cut our packaging or find new ways to reuse the things we are putting in the recycle bin we tipped a fortnights recycling on the floor in the kitchen and we sorted it (well the kids did - thanks kids).
And well, plastics - we have been trying to reduce the amount of plastic that enters the house but it's hard. We have reused some of the plastic bottles as little "mini-glasshouses" to protect seedlings in the garden. More recently I have been saving bread bags and other clean plastic bags and are going to a plastic weaving evening next week - that should be great. I love the idea of making stuff out of rubbish.
What's in your recycle bin? Can you reduce it? Can you reuse it?
Remembering that the three R's are REDUCE REUSE and then RECYCLE.
