So I was pleased to read this article on the BBC website Should you have two bins in your bathroom? and I hope it made people consider how much recyclable material they produce in the bathroom. We have three recycling bins in our house, each one in a room where we produce a lot of material; in the kitchen for food packing e.g bottles, cartons, tins, in the study for paper and in the bathroom for toilet rolls and shampoo bottles. Where do you produce the most of your recycling? Do you collect it?
Thankfully there are people in the BritMums community who put the extra effort in and we can all learn from the information they share. A particular shout out to Karen Cannard who was recently Talking rubbish on Radio 4.
