What it means to be eco-friendly
Make sure you know what can and can’t be recycled and look at other ways you can recycle your household waste, for example look at whether you can reuse the items in a different way around your home.
Cling film and foil are handy for wrapping sandwiches and covering leftover food, but they’re off to landfill after one use. Opt instead for reusable beeswax wraps and pop sandwiches into reusable containers made from bamboo or eco-plastic alternatives.
Also, don’t forget to recycle your uncooked food waste, such as fruit and vegetable peelings, by putting it in a compost bin, your garden will need the compost when it comes to spring planting time.
