Six ways to reuse laundry detergent dosing balls (6 comments)

The zero waste guide to medication (9 comments)
Me too. I don’t see why most (or any?) of this stuff needs the foil or the packet. We’re told we can ‘t recycle wrapping paper because some of it is plastic foil. What’s the difference?. […]

Keep your cool and reduce food waste (14 comments)
If your frozen kale is going bitter, I would suggest blanching it for a bit longer before freezing, as blanching is meant to kill the enzymes that cause the bitterness. Blanching should also help to stop it from going bad. […]

Time to confess! What secret desire do you have that flies in the face of your zero waste lifestyle? (5 comments)
Of course we have to question whether we should buy things or collect things in the first place – sometimes something should never have been there in the first place which would solve a recycling problem. But that’s not an easy thing to do is it? […]

Are you ready to Dump your Junk with the My Zero Waste January Challenge? (10 comments)
Hi Christine, sounds like you’ve made great progress. I got rid of a load of CDs during the summer but it was time consuming because, as you point out, you need to check they are ok to play before passing them on. Good luck with the shed; I really ne […]
