Idea 39 – Recycling plastic packaging- use your loaf

Keeping the recycling going can be tough in this period. Everything feels a little bit harder in our house. It is taking that little bit more internal conversation to stop myself just putting things in the bin. But we must keep going.

Did you know you can recycle stretchy plastic bags along with carrier bags. So empty plastic bread bags, vegetable bags and nappy bags, basically any plastic that has a bit of give and stretch, can all be recycled. There is a collection bin at most large supermarket. The closest one for us is at the entrance to Willowbrook Centre.

Here is a handy website to check recycling points.
