It starts on Monday and I was wondering if anyone is taking part and if so what are you doing?

After much thought I have decided to reduce our waste. We have a Vipp Bin that we use Brabantia slim line bin liners in (have tried allsorts including eco ones and they fit the best. We think we go through 3ish a week between three of us and dh when he is home. So I have decided to reduce this down to one.

So anyone else?

This is a good prompt to better my ways, as I’ve slipped a bit lately. So, a renewed commitment to:
* bringing my own shopping bags at all times.
* sowing & growing salad leaves so I don’t buy bagged salad (on the list for this afternoon!)
* sowing and growing herbs so I don’t buy the bagged herbs (on the list for this afternoon!)
* looking for foods/things with less packaging when I’m shopping
* use up leftover food before it goes off

Thank you for bringing this up Snowleopard!

Love, Sunshinexx

Oh Yes I agree with the herbs and I just might be able to grow them. Thank you for prompting me with that one.  I think by trying to reduce our daily waste we will find ways or reusing/not buying/recycling.

Lovely to see what you are up to ladies; thanks for talking about it here!
Come and join in on the facebook page if you’ve got time - over 800 people are taking part this year and I’ve just had a pledge from celebrity chef Gizzi Erskine too!

Zero Waste week is such a great reminder that whatever we’re doing we can still do more. I’ve started making a compost bin with my eldest and have got out the mending pile. It’s also got me thinking more generally about our consumer culture. Blogging some of the stuff we’re doing although not quite to the extent I’d planned!

Loved your post of building the compost bin Selina and great to have you journeying with us smile THanks for all your support!
