Some good uses for items that would otherwise be thrown away:
Save up the free carrier bags from tescos, Sainbury's etc and use them as bin liners for small bins, especially kitchen bins. They even have handles so are easy to tie up and throw away. You won't save megabucks but it is very environmentally friendly and personally I think they are stronger than the white plastic variety!
Fill empty milk cartons with water and use instead of dumbbells! My mum has upper arms like a champion badminton player and at no cost.
However, looking down our street and the grey bins (non-recyclable waste) that were collected today, clearly many people have still got a long way to go to understand how this all worlks... ....bags stacked up by the side of the bins and bins overflowing. Shame. It's really not that difficult.
also with shopping i have still got those reuseable green baskts safeways had for a while and it is great, i keep them in the car all the time
they should bring things like that back as i think more people woud use them now, does anyone agree?
I save glass jars and empty bottles and one use I have for these is to pour the left over oil from cooking in them so I can throw it away instead of pouring down the sink.
.....Thinks......can you put shredded paper in the recycling bins at the tip?I must enquire....
