What is interesting is that MOST of the recycling is PLASTIC and TETRAPAK containers!! Very little metal - because we don't use cans much.
The Ecover plastic bottle (with its coloured top) is interesting. Ecover sell their products on the basis that they are environmentally-friendly - but their containers certainly are not!
I was also surprised how many old one-time-use plant pots we threw out this week. We have SO many. There must be a better way to keep plant pots in the local economy so that they get re-used many times over. This would require some research and action on the garden centres in my local area with the local authority, perhaps?
