The 3 Rs

Recycling...I do it - but not enough. I used to have to trek to the local council glass, paper & can banks but now we have a green box which we can leave outside our door every Sunday night...apart that is for Easter Sunday night. Which means I have an over flowing green recycling box...easter egg boxes, drink cans, the usual.

It helps to be a bit stingy or a hoarder in the recycling game. I don't like paying ridiculous amounts of money for clothes (luckily I can't afford to either) so I love jumble sales and charity shops...and where do all my old clothes go? Back again. Any jars and containers or anything that could possibly be used again I keep, luckily I am a youthworker so many things come in handy for art activities. There are plenty of schools, clubs or community groups who could benefit from your recycling...not to mention the environment...of course if we didn't have so much waste in the first place...as they say...

REDUCE
REUSE
RECYCLE

According to http://www.recycle-more.co.uk/ around 80% of UK household rubbish could be reused or recycled.
