At the end of a long winter, Easter feels like a great opportunity to celebrate nature coming back to life; embrace the longer days and warmer weather, do some Spring cleaning, fill the house with spring flowers, and create some seasonally-inspired recipes in the kitchen.
And as part of a recent collaboration with Wales Recycles on their BeMightyRecycle / Bydd Wych, Ailgylcha campaign, I wanted to share some tips to make this year’s festivities a more eco-friendly affair – by making sure your Easter recyclables go on to live a new life of their own, too.
It’s a sad fact that Christmas is a time when we all create more waste. But this means it’s also a prime opportunity to make little changes that can really add up. I’ve teamed up with Wales Recycles on their BeMightyRecycle / Bydd Wych, Ailgylcha campaign to share some easy wins for a more eco-friendly 2020 Christmas.
We all know we should be doing our bit to cut food waste at home. But when it comes to the stuff we can’t eat (like teabags, coffee grounds, and eggshells) we can still have a positive environmental impact by making sure we recycle them.
Covid-19 has shaken our complacency about where our food comes from to the core. Research shows that people do not want to just return to how things were before, and many of us say we want to make better choices that will support people, animals and our environment.
But how do we put words into action? As more of us seek to minimise our impact on the planet, simply choosing to eat more organic food can offer an easy, trusted way to be more sustainable in our daily lives.
