The problem is not simply ensuring that things are sent for recycling. It is ensuring that the facilities for doing the recycling exist - actually reusing the materials.
You're right GG. Mostly they don't exist do they?
Not nearly as smart as yours, but it works!
Looks pretty classy to me artjak.
Alan 4711 (isn't that a cologne?) so fragrant Alan, the course is run once a year as far as I know, it took me 15 months wait to get on it; book it NOW! (sorry to shout) Contact Norfolk Council. I have to go into my emails to get you the exact email address, so look out for next post
Alan, I'm back; email [email protected]
The whole point of the course is that we not only learn more about composting ourselves (no, not quite composting ourselves, ) but that we go out and proselytise about it to stop more rubbish going into landfill and incinerators, via stands at fetes etc. plus talking to people; friends, neighbours, relatives to persuade them to compost. Hopefully we achieve this without being crossed off everyone's dinner party list
NutC., Have you been watching the Sewing Bee competition on T.V.?
artjak, no I haven't but you're not the first person to mention it. Is it good, should I be watching? That would mean I'd be watching 2 programmes a week. Not sure if I can deal with that much TV
Getting back to the plastic bag debate, when I was growing up (over 20 years ago now....) supermarkets in my town has cordened off areas with boxs for you to pack up your shopping. I never seen anything like this now. Maybe the occasional banana box at the end of a till, but nothing of the scale that it was. It strikes me that they now either recycle the cardboard themselves or bin it.
I would like to see a return to the days of cardboard box areas which my stop some of the overuse of dreadful plastic bags.
