I also made some fairy cakes for tomorrow's lunch boxes.
That's the good news. The bad news is that I've had to buy more plastic. What with the builders, a poorly daughter and Wednesday half day closing I couldn't get to my local shops and had to resort to Tescos. My ailing daughter needs cheering up, so tomorrow's lunch box, if she makes it to school, will contain pittas filled with 'flat' ham and Pom Bear crisps - all of which come in plastic. She'll also have a piece of fruit, in case you were worried that she isn't getting her 5 a day.
Which brings me to the question of how much support I can expect from my family with my challenge. They are all fairly positive about it and are reconciled to my not buying them anything in non recyclable wrappings next week. However what they buy is their own responsibility and I won't be checking their bags as they walk in the front door.
And so to today's bin:
- plastic inner wrapper from Ecover washing tablets
- blister pack
- plastic seal from milk bottle
PS I am reliably informed that tomorrow's Bristol Evening Post will contain an article on Zero Waste Challenge Week featuring yours truly.
