MOST RECENT

This is what the recycling of 1400 people at a six-hour event looks like. It's ALL food packaging. 60kg of it.
🗑️
To anyone not already aware, I'm on a mission to eliminate unnecessary waste. @norwichvegans allowed me to handle the recycling for the #norwichveganschristmasmarket on Sunday and this is it.
🗑️
It's taken me hours to sort and categorise everything, but it was worth it to keep trash out of landfill (initially at least - go over to @purecleanearth for more on that).
🗑️
What I noticed most was that almost every single piece of this rubbish could have been avoided. If we used our own containers for food and drinks we wouldn't need to create single-user waste. I was guilty, I bought something wrapped in paper, I could have brought a reusable wrap with me.
🗑️
Another thing I noticed was just how little plastic there was. So much of the packaging was paper or plant starch, which is a huge improvement on plastic, but we need to do more to refuse packaging.
🗑️
Thank you to everyone who put items in the boxes and not bins on Sunday. We can do this together!

What is the STRANGEST thing you found while collecting trash? 😂 ~ #trashology

Calling all earth warriors/planet heroes/environmentally conscious/kind souls that want to make a difference, you get the point.

@purecleanearth will be back cleaning the trashy streets of #attleborough again this Sunday. Anyone wanting to go from #norwich I can give you a lift. Come get trashy, make a difference, feel good, and have some fun. 😁🌍♻️💚

He is why we need to care.

When we throw something 'away' where do we imagine it is going? There is no such thing as 'away'

A lot of what we recycle still ends up in a landfill, but trying is far better than doing nothing.

The best thing we can do is not boundlessly consume everything.

Fortunately this guy was given the help he desperately needed, but many other animals meet their end every day because of our trash.

Please consider your purchases and be as ethical as you can. Animals are living out there. 🐢⚪🏪🛍️🌱🌍👍💚 📷 @byebyestraws

Supporting the local independents with bae (a bag of trash 🤣)

I can't make it to the cleanup tomorrow so I'm doing one today, with coffee breaks in-between to get out of the rain.

THIS is one reason why recycling isn't enough. There are entire villages in Asia that are dedicated to processing plastic from the west. Children even have jobs to sort it all.
•
Do you really need what you're about to buy? Do you already have one? Will you use it enough to warrant it's purchase? If not refuse it.
•
Do you you have one that can be repaired or reused? Do you know anyone you could borrow or buy one from? Thus reusing theirs.
•
Is there a more environmentally friendly option? Can you find one without plastic packaging? Is there a more sustainable alternative?
•
Can you buy less of it? Will some of it go to waste or never be used?
•
If you're still going to buy it, then recycle what you can. So much can be recycled, you just need to figure out what and where. I'm always happy to help and recycle things for you if you want to but can't.

My evening in reverse:
5) Dried and categorised trash for recycling
4) Drying the freshly cleaned packaging
3) Good job I don't actually use this bath!
2) Washing everything that can be recycled
1) I couldn't think of anywhere else to sort through street trash...
•
Oh and also getting more involved with @purecleanearth 😁
•
If you'd told me a few months ago that I (the local germaphobe) would be getting excited about cleaning up crisp packets from the street, I would have laughed and laughed. Now I dance to the sound of clean plastic bottles knocking together.
