Being a friend of the earth is not easy in a world full of consumption, energy guzzling and overuse. We live fast, eat fast, produce fast and usually without much thought to the world around us. Thankfully, we’re also living in a time where we are more socially aware of what’s acceptable and what isn’t, meaning our eyes have been opened to recycling and all the benefits that it entails. You should be always assessing how your family is managing its waste, especially as the councils across the country are slowing down the number of times that they want to do collections for household waste and recycling.
Therefore, it’s up to us to make sure we are vigilant about how much packaging we dispose of and how we manage our food waste. Recycling isn’t always easy to do, especially if you’re not sure of the rules of what can go where. If you haven’t ever had a compost heap before, you could find yourself at a loss with how to start one. Wising up to the amount of waste that you use is the key, and we’ve got some brilliant examples of how you can do better with your recycling efforts so that you can give back to the world that is sustaining you.
