Rethink your recycling

Posted by: In: Featured 21 Sep 2016 Comments: 0

Recycling starts in the supermarket aisle with the type of product we select and packaging they come in. Packaging serves a range of useful purposes, from protecting food and other goods to providing information about the product inside.

Although we have no control over the type of package we have a choice about what we take home – and what will end up in our recycling bin.

So while you’re wheeling the trolley around the aisles you can minimise your recycling needs by…

  1. Choosing items with minimal or no packaging.
  2. Avoiding buying products with excessive, multi-layer packaging.
  3. Buying products in bulk. This will minimise packaging and save you money.
  4. Buying refills instead of products in new packaging.
  5. Washing and reusing plastic plates, bowls and cutlery.
