THE RECYCLING REVOLUTION

Five unexpected ways you can go the extra mile to recycle, reuse and reduce!

1. WHAT’S COOKIN’ GOOD LOOKIN’?

Traditionally, we rush to the gym, change quickly, work out and rush back out again. However more and more gyms and studios are encouraging their members to use them as spaces for socialising, unwinding or Here’s a simple way to reduce electricity/gas consumption and save you a pretty penny on your shopping bills – make a weekly meal plan. By planning ahead you prevent wasting food and energy used to prepare the food. It may seem like a bit of a no-brainer but you’ll be surprised at the difference it makes.

2. IT’S HIP TO BE SQUARED

The perfect bag is often hard to find. Never the right size or style. Well look no further! Earth Squared, a fabulous North Berwick-based company, has got you covered. They have a wide variety of stylish bags and accessories. But wait, there’s more! Not only can you look great but you can feel great too, knowing that this company is fair trade and ethical. Earth Squared strives to “combine contemporary designs with fantastic craftmanship”. So what are you waiting for? Go on, treat yourself.

3. BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUT

Wasting money on single-use beauty products? Why not try switching it up? Replace facewipes with a washcloth, or to remove nail varnish use sponge-bottle remover rather than cotton pads. There are so many great sustainable beauty brands out there; looking so good has never been so simple!

4. CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME

Fancy doing a bit of downsizing or decluttering? Instead of taking a trip to the tip think about donating, repurposing or selling those unwanted items. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.

5. FILL ME UP!

Nowadays plastic is EVERYWHERE! The UK alone produces roughly 5 million tonnes every year. A few things you can do at home to reduce your plastic consumption can be as simple as recycling glass jars as storage containers, looking for plastic free/refill shops or opting to use local green grocers or a dairy with glass bottles. Simple but effective.
