Plastic free for a month?

Christine Jeavans of Auntie Beeb is attempting to not accept or buy any plastic for a month. Interesting challenge! We already recycle most of our plastic waste, but not because our council accepts it. The neighbouring one has roadside refuse collection points with bins for nearly everything, so when dh is driving past that way he takes our stuff, which has usually been loitering in the kitchen for weeks, and bins it there. Our in-laws put everything with a recycle symbol on in their green bin, even though the council has a list of what not to put in, which is what we did too until dh found the layby with the bins.

But it would still be nicer to not have any to recycle, after all the mantra is "reduce, re-use, recycle" and there is a reason why recycle is last on the list!

And that's reminded me to look for a digester-cone type thing to go in the garden...
