Where To Recycle Items in The UK

When it comes to reducing our household waste, a lot of the responsibility falls to us the consumer. Yes, the companies label their products – some clearer than others – but this can often lead to overwhelm, confusion, different instructions for different materials on one piece of packaging and reluctance to try due to lack of time. I know, I am one of those people too. Recycling has its place (we need this waste to go somewhere) but it most definitely isn’t my favourite part of trying to live more eco-friendly.

Aside from the complicated systems, our council doesn’t even recycle very much kerbside which has left me baffled when I look at other areas -parts of Dorset and Devon for example – who recycle so much that it makes life far easier for the consumer. With recycling being so tricky in some parts of the UK I completely understand why this service isn’t used to the max and why too much of our waste ends up in landfill. If we had the information, clear instructions, easier to recycle packaging or kerbside services then we could all be making a bigger difference.

When you first start to look into making your lifestyle a little more eco-friendly it can be quite natural to feel overwhelmed by the products, suggestions, tips, ideas and so on. One thing I am often asked is where to start and my simple answer is to always start small. Choosing really easy products, swaps you think you will love and greener alternatives that will stick is the most sustainable way of becoming sustainable. Once these swaps become your new norm and you can find your routine with them, move onto the next area you think you could change and soon, you will be making small sustainable steps each and every day.

Zero Waste Week: Tips For Shopping at a Refill Store

This week I have written about getting started with reducing waste as well as talking about reusable products but one of the biggest areas we produce the majority of our household waste is within our food shopping. Packaging is vital in keeping our food fresh and hygienic but so much of it still isn’t recyclable and is plastic. Reducing your waste here can be very tricky but with the rise in refill stores coming to towns, cities and high streets, we all now have a better way of shopping zero waste.

With refill stores still being very new to many people, the whole process may seem a little daunting so I thought I would provide you with a few tips from myself as well as from a refill store owner.
