Zero Waste - Day 1
Well today we have managed to put nothing into the landfill bin.
All veggies and fruit peelings from making my Sweet Ratatouille Chutney went into the compost bin wrapped in newspaper.
The tray and film the mince for the lasagne came in will be put into the collection box for parcelling off to GHS .
The empty glass milk bottles were left on the doorstep this morning.
The tins from both the chopped tomatoes and tomato puree were rinsed and added to the recycling bin.
DS2 wanted a drink whilst we were in town today shopping, he chose a bottle that had number 2 on the bottle and when he opened it the lid was also number 2. These were both put intothe recycling bin when we got home.
Dave took a zero waste packed lunch to work with him; sandwiches were wrapped in a t/towel and cake was put in a small plastic tub, the banana skin went into the compost bin.
