The yoghurt was a success. It's chilling in the fridge and I may have some of it for breakfast tomorrow morning.
This afternoon I finally managed to refill my Ecover laundry and washing up liquids at Windmill Hill City Farm, saving me from the purchase of two new plastic bottles and even from Ecover washing tablets, which come in a cardboard outer box but plastic inner wrappers.
Deciding on which products to buy on the basis of their packaging is no easy matter. Outer wrapping is easy to establish but there is often no indication of what lies beneath. I got caught yesterday in Tescos when I bought a packet of frozen breaded cod fillets. The packet was cardboard and when I picked it out of the freezer it felt as if the fillets were moving freely within. However, when I got it home I discovered an inner plastic bag. I hope that I shall be able to recycle it in Sainsbury's plastic bag recycling bin, but it is nonetheless unnecessary waste.
Today's bin is my slimmest yet:
- one plastic straw - and even this was brought into my house by a visitor!
