Alternative to black bags
Hi. We’re just about to do our annual clear up of leaves. We usually store them in black bin liners to rot down into leaf mould but I wonder if are there alternatives as I have read that black plastic, in particular, is really bad for the environment. Will an unused wheelie bin work ? Presumably sealing the leaves in black plastic aids the rotting process but we are trying to cut back on plastic. We have a compost heap too - I guess it will just take longer. Any ideas please ?
