Here is a pic of this week's waste - everything else we've been able to compost. I'm trying to avoid recycling, but Pete won't do that so the recycling bins are filling (albeit slower) with newspapers and bottles. Our waste shame includes:
4x magazine wrappers - possibly recyclable via Friends of the Earth's amazing office recycling facilities.
1x heavy plastic book promo quarter sleeve - pointless really but came from a free book Lola was given
1x cheese and onion hula hoops - yet to be turned into car boot sale treasure by the girls
1x drinking straw - from Nell's picnic lunch (a left over tetra-pak box in the cupboard)
1x polystyrene plate - from the riding school cafe eating failue - will be turned into a mask and then I think has to go
2x small plastic packets which had Easter eggs in (given by my mum to Pete)
1x starburst sweet detritus - possibly this is compostable, we'll give it a go.
The bin however is currently out of action, covered with a big homemade pic to try and stop us forgetting!
