I try really hard to recycle. I really do.
I send my old magazines to the doctor's office - or at least I have good intentions to, but sometimes they sit in my boot for a few extra months.. Well that would be nothing on the two or three year old mags currently sitting there.
We compost our leftovers and food scraps.
I'm trying to reduce what we throw in the bin.
I re-use containers. I sometimes use newspaper to wrap garbage in (but mainly the newspaper is sent for recycling).
I leave my green supermarket bags in the car for any shopping expeditions that spring up.
And my favourite motto:
If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down.
That's become our households mantra actually. And it saves lots of water!
Oh - and I thrift like a maniac - and vice versa.
