We used to use hundreds but now I have given them up! So what do I keep my rubbish in then? I could use compostable bin liners made out of cornstarch or paper bags but why pay when you don’t have to? And we dont!

We boycott plastic, recycle, and compost – all of which means our kitchen bin is nearly empty. What rubbish we do create is mostly dry, at worst a bit sticky, so it can go straight into our kitchen bin.

The bin has one of those hard removable plastic liners that can be washed out after emptying – which helps if waste is a bit grubby.

We empty our kitchen bin straight into our black bin. You could use a degradable plastic liner in the wheelie bin if you really wanted to – or had to.  We don’t need to as, most of our rubbish is dry, and our council is sensible.


Originally we had a bin with a steel liner but it began to rust and was  hard to keep clean. So I changed to plastic. See we don’t hate it  (you can follow our plastic we use tag to see the plastic we indulge in).

Dont know which compost bin to buy, only got a tiny apartment, or have no  need for humus? Dont worry, you can still compost – try this range of interesting compost bins

BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
