Your crisps may be ready salted, but unlike spray bottles and yoghurt pots they aren’t ready to be recycled from home. TerraCycle UK and @walkers offer a free crisp packets recycling scheme so check it out.
It's the The Wildlife Trusts National Marine Week! We love this gorgeous film which highlights the problem of plastic pollution, but also the importance of inspiring the next generation to care about the environment: http://ow.ly/POdj50AIQGU Thanks to the creators 🙏
Shampoo bottles are recyclable! In fact, loads of items in your bathroom can be recycled, including:
- Conditioner bottles
- Shower gel and bubble bath bottles
- Toilet rolls tubes
- Shaving foam bottles
Let’s unmask the truth! Globally we're using around 129 billion disposable face masks EVERY MONTH. Save money, and the planet, with a reusable face covering. Some great London-based small businesses that sell reusable face masks are Bags of Ethics @FFSB Hackney Mask and LMB Textiles
Clean up your recycling. Rinsed shampoo and bleach bottles are a big yes-yes, while squeezable tubes are a big no-no. Try and replace squeezy tubes with hard tubes with pump-action, as these can be recycled!
Facemasks are going to be compulsory in shops and supermarkets from Friday 24 July. Disposable facemasks can't be recycled and generate a lot of waste. Why not invest in some reusable ones? @afromasksuk have some nice ones! http://ow.ly/uD6B50AAYOp
