As you know from my previous post on Bristol Recycling Transfer Station the recycling is sorted kerbside and into the lorry before being piled around the site. What happens to it next? Glass The glass collected at kerbside does not need to be sorted into colours – it goes to a re-processing plant in … Continue reading What Happens to our Recycling?

New Petition! Please Help! (Groan!)
As part of my Lent Promise I started a new petition yesterday. It’s very similar to the old (unsuccessful) one. Today’s Lent activity is to publicise said petition so here we go. In early September 2018 I petitioned the government on their own petition website. I had six months to gather as many electronic signatures … Continue reading New Petition! Please Help! (Groan!)
I’m so embarrassed! I’ve never claimed to be a perfect greenie and I’m sorry to say that I have booked FOUR plane flights this year.

Wrapping Up for Christmas?
How do we ethically wrap our Christmas and birthday presents? The wrapping paper industry must be huge, especially at this time of year. Unfortunately most local authorities will not take wrapping paper for recycling. Bristol City Council say that they do not recycle it because it is such low grade. I may not be right … Continue reading Wrapping Up for Christmas?
