A rubbish post

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Well in my case the good intentions usually consist of something to do with recycling, reducing my carbon footprint, reusing stuff instead of throwing it away or otherwise reducing the harm done to the environment. The hell - on earth - will be what's left of our planet if we don't.

So I've signed up for Karen Cannard's Rubbish Diet challenge. Over the next eight weeks I'm going to slim my bin. And I've already begun this morning by doing this...



Ok, not much; I'm sure the planet isn't going to feel the benefit just yet. But it's a start. And I'm hoping there'll be more. Karen's site - The Rubbish Diet - contains a whole host of ideas. There's surely something, however small, that everyone can do. I'm not sure I shall be able to meet the challenge of having a zero waste week at the end of the eight-week programme, but I'm determined to do something to slim that bin. 

Fancy doing something similar? You can find out more about it right here, and there's a post launching the eight-week challenge published this morning. 

If we all did something, anything, however small... 

...there'd be less work for the bin-men for a start.
