Terracycle are moving into reuse, and working with manufacturers to provide big containers of things like washing liquid etc which can be returned and reused. I like the idea of this

Its also MSE. We order huge bulk containers from a single supplier who is environmentally friendly and get it all delivered at once. We are then drowning in loo rolls, WUL, floor cleaner or whatever (and I appreciate you need space to store it and money to cover the initial outlay which not everyone has (we use our loft a lot ) and it definitely works out cheaper. We then usually refill them from a local store. or we recycle..but returning instead would be a great idea.
We live in a city so the idea of communal recycling points could work for us....but you're right we have to think who is responsible for what. I am reading all this stuff about electric cars and going all electric by 2030 which in theory is fab but I dont see how car charging in our narrow Victorian streets of terraced houses built around the horse and cart would ever really work...we need a system wide re-think which is agile enough to cope with change
On the other hand our panels work beautifully..I am awaiting a tariff payment any day now..
Hope you're enjoying the weather jwil..its well overdue as far as I am concerned
Have a great week x

I've learnt a few new things about recycling since reading your diary Jwil. I'm feeling more conscious of my plastic use now, so will definitely be more mindful of that from now on.
Good news on the survey earnings .

I've cashed out another £5.64 from a survey site :T
Got a lot to try and catch up on. I've had a counselling session and am going to be referred to an online cbt therapy course for my anxiety. It's been much improved recently, but I don't want to stay on medication forever and want to change how I react to things.
I'm hoping to get my 1 stone award tonight. Not sure if I've quite done enough but I'm hopeful. Hoping that the next one won't take so long. I do think I am well on my way to make permanent changes though so am happy to go slow if the weight is going to come off and stay off! I do need to tackle the exercise though, I'm just not doing enough (or any!)

Great that you're sounding so positive.
Agree that going slower, but ending up with permanent changes is definitely the way to go. Rome wasn't built in a day, and slow change becomes habit.
