I then stocked up on brown paper bags for lunchboxes and was persuaded to buy 1,000 for just over £6. Is that .6 p per bag? And at our current rate of consumption they should last about two years! Bargain.
Today's bin contained:
- plastic seal from Heinz mayonnaise bottle
- Seasoned Pioneers spice packet (a mixture of foil and plastic)
- plastic couscous packet
- 2 Tunnocks wrappers
- M&S plastic sweetcorn bag
I shall need to make enquiries about the M&S bag, which says it is disposable. Does this mean it can be placed in a plastic bag recycling bin? There really is a case to be made for standardised clearer labelling.
