When it comes to recycling, humanity needs to think big

When someone asks you to think about 'what can we recycle?' you may come up with many answers straight away. Plastic bags, cans, paper, different types of plastic; there are so many things that we are reminded to recycle every day. The facilities for them are slowly improving year by year. In the UK, several major supermarkets now charge a nominal amount for plastic bags in order to get customers to consider if they need them, and a lot of local areas have set up specific household and community recycling bins. Yet, considering how technology is advancing in terms of what we can recycle, we need to broaden our minds a bit more to make that a reality. Why only keep to the little things when modern technology gives us the capability to think so much bigger?


Recently the methods of recycling have expanded to include more modern technology. For example, mobile phones are now commonly recycled, with several companies offering cash in exchange for them. Ink cartridges can be recycled or refilled, cutting down dramatically on the waste from printers.

Top 10 Tips for a Green, Sustainable and Eco Friendly Christmas (part 3)

Be battery wise
Families can get through a lot of batteries, particularly at Christmas. Batteries contain toxic chemicals, don't biodegrade and are difficult to recycle. Instead use rechargeable ones.

Buy an organic turkey
10 million turkeys are eaten every Christmas. If you can, try to make sure it has been reared in humane conditions. Organic turkeys taste better too. Try to buy your Christmas food locally, shopping at farmers markets or buying direct from the farmer is far cheaper than buying organic in the supermarket. Think of the benefits – the taste of chemical-free food, the reduction in food miles and CO2 emissions, and reduced dependence on oil. Buying locally produced food also boosts rural jobs.

Paraffin candles are made from petroleum residues so neither do your health or the environment any good. Soy, beeswax or natural vegetable-based candles are better because they biodegrade, are smoke-free, and so more eco friendly.

Deck the halls with real holly
Instead of spending money on artificial Christmas decorations that won’t biodegrade, let nature decorate your home. House decorations can be made from organic, recycled and scrap materials. Try popcorn, dough, cinnamon sticks, bows, gingerbread, holly, seasonal berries, ivy and evergreen branches – once you have finished with them, you can put them in the composter.
