Increase Your Recycling Efforts This Summer

With the school holidays on the way and the typical British weather making a comeback you’ll be eating outdoors, so make it sustainable this summer with these top tips:

Greener barbecues

  • Most of you packaging can be recycled such as paper, card, cardboard, glass bottles, jars, cans, tins and plastic bottles.
  • Avoid wasting food by only cooking enough for the people attending and if you still have food left, save it for lunch the next day.

Picnic tips

  • Use reusable cutlery and crockery rather than plastic disposable options.
  • Buy loose fruit and vegetables rather than in outer packaging and always place the food in reusable containers rather than in cling film or tin foil.
  • Try to buy local produce to reduce the carbon footprint and provide support to local farmers.
