Welcome to our first summer Sunday Roundup! Find out what we’ve been up to this week on My Zero Waste

On Monday things started to get really serious. Find out about the conversation Mr Green and I had to tackle about a rather sensitive issue.

By Tuesday I was getting a little despondent about some things I found in the garden and I started to have some rubbish thoughts. Just what did I find on a walk around our garden that had me feeling like this?

Wednesday was our second weekly weigh in – had we lost or gained weight?

On Thursday we gave the entire site a face lift and a lick of paint. If you’re an RSS reader, then come and drop by and let us know what you think of our new look. Any comments or suggestions? What do you like or not like? Come and tell us on our have your say page.

Find out just how many people have something say about rubbish in our Thursday blog post.

On Friday, I showed how you could have your cake, sweets and chocolate *and* eat it! Find out which brands of sweets and chocolate you can indulge in without an ounce of guilt about the packaging you are left with. You might put on a few pounds yourselves, but your bin will remain delightfully slim.

We put up more articles on the site this week:

Is your dustbin drowning in a sea of polythene packaging? Polythene is the type of plastic that bread, fruit and vegetables, toilet rolls and magazines come wrapped in. We’ve found a way to recycle it! Read how to recycle plastic polythene.

Have you seen the funny symbol on your electronic and electrical goods recently? The wheelie bin that is crossed through? Find out what it means here.

Bombarded with junk mail? Find out how to stop it here and remember to check back for an exclusive competition in July, with the Stop Junk Mail site.

Don’t forget to come along and take advantage of the last few days for getting a generous 15% off Onya bags. These reusable bags are the neatest design ever. Fed up of forgetting to take your bags into the shop with you? Onya bags fold into their own pouch and come complete with a carribiner clip so that your bag is always onya!

Next week, find out how to reduce plastic bread packaging with our handy tips, learn how to stop those annoying Yellow pages and BT telephone directories and find out which cosmetics companies get the zero waste thumbs up from us for their superb recycling policies.

Come along to the site and take part! Vote in our polls or take part in our monthly challenge. Come out from behind your RSS feeds and have your say on any of our blog posts, news items and articles.

Look out for some great discounts and competitions coming up over the next couple of months. We’ve some fab companies lined up who can’t wait to give you some generous discounts and are itching to give away some prizes.

Have a wonderful weekend xxx
