When I lived 'on the bank' I was quite good about recycling. This was aided and abetted by the strictures of the local authority's recycling scheme, not necessarily, in complete fairness, my eco-conscience.
Since living on a boat I must admit that I have been less than diligent about separating my paper from my plastics from my glass from...my teabags. This has obviously been playing on my mind because I have been looking for a solution to this failure of social responsibility and today I found it...
I realised that perhaps in excess of 90% of what went in the old Brabantia was recyclable - if I could find some way of separating the used teabags and vegetable peelings I was on the home straight. With two Labradors on board we don't accumulate 'waste food' so compostable products are limited.
Today I tracked down the solution..a compost caddy.

I can easily and hygienically separate the paper from the plastic from the glass and tin when it comes to disposing of this waste and the peelings can go in the land fill or...under a hedge..
