Do not bottle your recycling this Christmas!

Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environment. UK households produced 30.5 million tonnes of waste in 2003/04, which means17% was collected for recycling (source: This figure is still quite low compared to some of our neighbouring EU countries, some recycling over 50% of their waste. There is still a great deal of waste which could be recycled that ends up in landfill sites which is harmful to the environment. DID YOU KNOW up to 60% of the rubbish that ends up in the dustbin could be recycled and 1 recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours. After Christmas, set recycling as one of your New Year resolutions!

Recycling is an excellent way of saving energy and conserving the environment

With the growing concern for the environment over recent years and the ever increasing trend of ‘going green’, recycling has been brought to the forefront of our minds with questions of how we, as individuals, can do ‘our bit’ to help the cause and the small amount of help that you can give will go a long way but we need moral support and constant praise for the help that we are providing. It often seems that unless we raise millions of pounds or recycle half of Hackney, nobody bats an eyelid. Well, all this is starting to change as we see the face of small efforts being nationally recognised. Let’s Recycle has introduced a new category in their national ‘Awards for Excellence’ to recognise community achievements such as these across the nation – ‘The Best Community Recycling Initiative’. There are many other ways you can do your bit for the environment. Cycle to work- with the summer coming up and the weather will be getting better, why not cycle to work instead of taking the car? You will save money, reduce air pollution and keep your heart healthy by exercising! Go Solar- solar power (also known as solar energy). This technology will obtain usable energy from the light of the sun. This is a great investment and you will notice the difference in your monthly bills in the long run.

They are nearly half the price of the originals and work just as well, sometimes even better. If you work in a busy office you could save a good amount of money or even if it is just for home use.
