little miss green recycles
Good morning everyone!

We’re refreshed and ready for another zero waste day. In fact, it sounds suspiciously like Little Miss Green has been up ready to embrace another day since 5am. I haven’t dared go downstairs yet to find out what awaits me. It will probably be something along the lines of the cat being allowed to eat all the things she isn’t allowed to eat or I’ll find the contents of the airing cupboard strewn on the floor for an assortment of nests and dens.
I keep telling Little Miss Green that the cat has a built in duvet called a fur coat and a fluffy bottom, so she really doesn’t need cushions, towels and bedding to lie on, but my advice falls on deaf ears.
What would I know; I’m only her Mother?

For those of you outside of the Points West area, or for those who missed it, here is our short news story that was aired yesterday on TV.

We’re looking forward to a quieter day; I’m hoping to do some decluttering as part of my own personal pledge and we’ll see what else awaits us. Enjoy the minute and a half of us and thank you again to Steve for recording the story – it was great to meet you!

  1. Hi Mrs Green,

    A very good introduction for families who will be encouraged to follow your example in the council organised Zero Waste Week. It is amazing to think that this could become normal practice in every home, quite soon.

    When I started that was the problem. How do you get oridnary people involved? People here know my various eccentricities, no landfill bin, not this year, old fashioned bags everywhere, home composting etc. Getting them to follow suit is the difficulty.

    Council involvement is the way, starting in Gloucester. This will spread as other councils see the benefits.

    Lovely piece which would be a great starting point to show anyone not quite sure how to go about this.

  3. That’s fabulous Mr & Mrs G and top marks to Points West for featuring your Zero Waste challenge. You were both excellent. Where councils may quiver over the value of rolling out such schemes locally, I would hope that what you’ve done and the flurry of comments that have followed has shown that councils should grab the idea by the horns and run with it. There are more supporters out there that we could ever know about.

    Ah Mrs Strauss, this was wonderful and good you all for doing your huge part to help our Mother earth. It can be done!!! Thank you for sharing!

    I enjoyed your broadcast, nipping out from the kitchen whilst making our tea. When I came upstairs to put some in the freezer I found my other half had the same channel on, so asked him if he’d seen you. “oh yes,” he said “I thought it would interest you so I’ve emailed you the link!”
    I particularly enjoyed Mr Green’s show and tell by the recycling boxes – mainly I admit out of covetousness at your spacious and efficient system!

    Hello everyone,
    Thank you for your comments and support. I have to admit, we were really pleased with Steve’s camera work. He did well because it was meant to be him reporting plus a cameraman, but he had to come on his own and be two people at once.

    Mrs A – I loved your comment and I’m hoping for the same outcome as you; more interest in the ease of recycling and reducing waste.

    Kris – your husband emailing you sounds exactly like the sort of thing that goes on here LOL!
