With family get-togethers, gift giving, and all that extra chocolate, you might find you have more rubbish around at home this Easter.
Recycling the foil wrapping from Easter eggs is easy to do and can make a big difference. Loose foil is too small to be captured at the recycling facility so scrunch the foil into the size of a tennis ball.
To be more sustainable over the holiday period at Easter, you could also consider
- Reducing, reusing and recycling packaging
- Looking for products with the least amount of packaging to reduce environmental impacts
- Upcycling packaging into arts and crafts, or using homemade elements to decorate gifts
- Making sure all cardboard boxes, glass bottles and hard plastics in your recycling bin at home
Should you find yourself in the unlikely position of having unwanted or excess chocolate, just pop it into your food waste bin!
All food waste can go into your green council bin.
