Recycling has become an everyday topic, which is fantastic news for our world. However, sometimes it can be seen as scary and overwhelming – how can my efforts make any difference?”

Today is Global Recycling Day — here’s some ideas to get you talking about recycling with your family:

  • When you create a meal, sort out your packaging to see which pieces can be recycled
  • When you go out for a walk, take a flask of drink with you rather than purchasing a disposable cup
  • See if your local area has a zero waste’ shop where you can take your own containers to fill up with store cupboard essentials and some yummy treats
  • If you have babies, have a look at the UK Nappy Network to see if there’s a cloth nappy library near you
  • Take a bag for life with you when you go shopping so that you don’t need a new plastic carrier bag each time

Some crafty recycling activities…

If you have a go at any of these activities, or have ideas you’d like to share with other families, drop us an email: [email protected]
