Paper, plastic, aluminium cans, tetra paks (milk cartons, packet drinks), cardboard, tin cans and bottles. Get the whole family into recycling mode, especially your kids. Read my post Teaching Kids To Recycle. I even recycle price tags which most people overlook. They're made of paper aren't they? Throw them in the paper recycling bin.
2. Reduce waste
Do you know that if you cut your toothpaste tube in half, after you've tried squeezing every bit out of it, there's still enough inside there to last you a few more days? Learnt this tip from a recycling talk I attended many years back and have been practising it since.
3. Use products that are packaged in recyclable material.
6. Think Before You Throw
This is another way to keep your mind alert and ward off Alzheimer's. Seriously, get into this habit of thinking before you throw and you'd find that there are more things you can recycle than throw away.
7. Go plant a tree!
Haven't done that. Would love to one day.
* I hope to start a series of posts called "Green Tips". Stay tuned.
