That little black bag you see there in the foreground is TWO weeks rubbish for us -- that's right, I forgot to put out the trash last week... How do we do it? We try to avoid buying things with unncessary packaging. We recycle a lot. We compost a lot. The council provides us with a supply of black bags once a year -- enough black bags to put out two a week. We put out less than one a week and are currently amassing quite a stash of black bags!

There was an article in the news the other week about a council that wanted to monitor how much people were throwing away and charge them accordingly -- we are all in favour of this -- we could save a fortune!

What's in your rubbish?

Yes, we seem to have a stressed hen... :)
