Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Here at www.yourssustainably.com we not only search for the best, well designed, eco-friendly home and fashion accessories we also like to bring to your attention current news and advice from the sustainable world.
We all see distressing images in the news of pollution in our oceans and closer to home our streets and countryside are littered with fast food containers, plastic bags and empty drinks cans. Closer to home we are all well aware of the need to recycle our home waste but some councils are having to reject up to one in five recycling bins as they were contaminated with the wrong items, this waste has to then be buried or incinerated.
More information on what can and cannot be placed in our recycling bins must be better communicated to the public and leading waste management experts WRAP has launched a recycling locator, based on a postcode, which tells homeowners what they can recycle at home and what can be passed on locally. By entering your postcode you are shown a range of recycling options, the materials collected and the distance from your property.
All of us are and will be affected by climate change and we can all make small adjustments to our daily lives which will make a difference. Recycling must be made easier for us all and this guide is a helpful step towards achieving the 50% recycling target for the UK.
