This is made up mostly of:
- yoghurt pots and other plastic food containers - I am starting to make my own yoghurt but I'm not sure I can see the girls giving up their fromage frais or me my creme fraiche and double cream.
- tetrapaks - I know this is a bad one. They are horrible things and my council doesn't recycle them. If only juicing were even vaguely economical and less time-consuming. But it isn't and we just don't seem to be able to give up our breakfast juice.
- plastic packaging material that can't be recycled - some companies are worse than others. Computer firms are particularly bad, and no doubt there's a highly technical reason why they use that soft plasticky material, or tons of polystyrene.
- nappies - Yay! The last week of nappies for this family. We were pretty good as I stuck to Motherease and Moltex most of the time. Lately it's been one nappy a night. So next week the bin should be one third emptier.
