Recycling is something we participate in actively in the Bluecrisps household. Plastics, tins, foil, paper, cardboard are all sorted and left out each week for the council workers to collect. Glass goes to the bottle banks. Plastic food wrapping and carrier bags are taken to the container in the supermarket and we attempt to re-use and up-cycle as much as possible. But however hard we try, we’re all responsible. Our materialistic chuck-it-away-and-get-another-one lifestyle isn’t helping the planet.
It’s frustrating when we walk past other houses on rubbish/recycling collection day and you can see the cardboard, the tins, the glass and the paper through their flimsy bin bags. Walk past the area near the local secondary school and the plastic bottles and rubbish are discarded carelessly, even though there are bins nearby and no doubt recycling facilities within school.
Our planet is so beautiful and we all need to preserve and nurture it for future generations. Any initiative that a household name commits to can only be a benefit, which is why I’m supporting wholeheartedly the Message In Our Bottle campaign with Ecover.
