On my trip to Sainsburys yesterday I was also looking at the dishwasher products as will be needing some on the next trip, Sainsburys own "Clean Home" tablets come in a cardboard box (recyclable) and the tablets are wrapped in a disolvable film as you don't have to unwrap them when putting in the dishwasher.
I also bought some Fairtrade Organic Bananas which come in a package which clearly states on it that it can be put into the compost heap.
My friend has given me a load of cooking apples so these will be cooked down and frozen, or chopped and frozen for use over the coming months. There will also be some mincemeat made ready for the mince pies at Christmas.
I was a very kindly given a load of brand new jam jars by the boys Karate teacher who wasn't going to use them himself.
