Tip 1: De-pouchify your life
Seems like manufacturers are obsessed with printed plastic pouches. Ready meals, pre-prepared rice, frozen fruit and veg, vitamins and even electronics come trussed up in these awkward-to-recycle containers.
Where there’s a more easily recyclable alternative, grab it with both hands.
Tip 2: Choose glass or a can over plastic-packaged drinks
Leave the plastic-packaged drinks on the shelf; instead, pick a thirst-quencher packaged in infinitely recyclable glass or metal.
Tip 3: Ditch black plastic trays for alternatives
Most black plastic trays are near invisible to the sorting sensors in automated recycling machines, commonly ending up in landfill or sent for incineration.
Look for products packaged in clear or white plastic, or, even better, opt for metal- or glass-contained goods.
