Succumbed

Our little world in Banbury is a world of re-cycling. We have re-cycling bins and boxes for bottles (green, brown and clear glass) - we re-cycle cardboard and paper - and Posselq has hessian carrier bags from Tesco which live in the boot of his car. I, however, am about as far removed from being an eco-warrier as it is possible to be.

Today - that has all changed. I was in the checkout queue and the lady in front of me picked up two of the Green shopping bags - "What a good idea!" I thought and proceeded to buy three of them. They are very good and have pockets for bottles (oh for goodness sake - get a grip) and are very roomy - so roomy in fact that a £65 shop fitted nicely into two of them with room to spare.

I am not about to swap my diesel truck for anything eco-friendly any time soon - but I think that so far I'm doing really well. One step at a time.

  1. I use those too & I have a compost bin, not that I'm into recycling more off setting! I have no quarms about the vast amounts of disposable nappies we get through & I won't give up my tin foil roasting tins for any bugger ... & nor should I have too, for I recycle egg shells!!!
