Recycling – It’s worth it! We simply don’t have the room on Earth to keep burying rubbish. Recycling is essential to our future. It’s also faster and more cost effective than sourcing materials to make new products from. Reusing materials saves a huge amount of energy, which in turn benefits the planet and its ecosystems on the whole.

Recycling in the home
- Consider the packaging your purchase comes in. It should give a clear indication whether it is suitable for recycling or not. Establish this prior to purchase and you’ll save yourself time and energy further down the line.
- If you find yourself regularly recycling or composting whole vegetables or fruit – as opposed to peelings and scraps – consider buying less in future.
