Mr, Mrs and Little Miss Green welcome you to my zero waste

Welcome to my zero waste!

In case you haven’t been following the site this week, we have a story in the Sunday Mirror “Homes and Holiday” supplement today. Hopefully it’s not too late for you to take a brisk walk to your newsagent to get hold of a copy and take a peek into our kitchen and daily life.

I usually share reduce, recycle, reuse or compost stories on a Sunday, but this week, I’m going back to our weekly roundup, so new visitors can find their way around.

We’re hoping to see lots of new faces; please jump in and leave comments around the site; tell us how you found us, how much rubbish your throw away each week and any challenges you face with reducing the amount of landfill your household creates. Maybe you have no interest at all in reducing your waste – leave us a comment anyway and share your views.

Plastic free tea

I started the week by talking about the nation’s favourite cuppa. Finding a plastic free tea isn’t the easiest of tasks, but we have found a few. Find out which brands of zero waste tea you can support with a guilt free conscience and please add any others you are aware of to the comments!

Disposable plastic carrier bags

On Tuesday, I turned into a bit of a bag lady and shared news of all the shops which are helping you to remember your reusable shopping bags. Saying no to disposable plastic carrier bags is the first step to take on your own zero waste journey, so have a read about the good guys and add your own stories.

How I nearly set fire to the house

On Wednesday, I had a bit of a catastrophe in the kitchen. Put it this way, plastic bags and warm hobs don’t mix. Find out why I vowed never to buy apples in a plastic bag again.

Save money and food waste

On Thursday, I put my feet up while Sally White from WRAP told you how to get the most out of your freezer, reduce the amount of food you send to landfill and save some money this Christmas. Did you know you could freeze cheese or make bread sauce in advance? I didn’t! Sally shares lots of tips to get the most out of your freezer, so don’t miss out.

Incineration in Gloucestershire

Mid morning, I received an urgent email about the latest on incineration in Gloucestershire. Cllr Sarah Lunnon, Green District and County councillor, wrote to local press about the risks the County are taking regarding a Judicial Review. We printed her letter here.

A man in my kitchen

On Friday, I found a man lying on my kitchen floor with a camera in his hand. Find out exactly what he was up to and at the same time have a rummage through our bin to see how much landfill waste we created this week.

Finally, we thought we’d take you on a journey down memory lane with our 1 1/2 minutes of fame last September on Points West television
