From the Plastic Is Rubbish Flickr group
Thanks to Harry Shuldman forthis great picture …..
In his own words… “squirrel in Wash. Sq. Park forcing a wadded up plastic bag down its throat. I tried to shoo him away to stop him from eating the bag, but he was determined to finish it. This is why you need to throw your trash in the trash!”
Of course we would say boycott the filthy stuff.
Every year plastic is implicated in the
death and crippling of animals worldwide
Check out the Flickr

This week I will be taking part in zerowaste week. The general aim of this week is to send nothing to landfill however I am nothing if not pedantic. Zerowaste means just that! So I will be sending nothing to be recycled either!
Which means I will put put nothing in my black bin or my green bin. I will send nothing to landfill AND nothing to be recycled. That means no plastic, no tins, no glass and no paper.
I only want to make waste that I can dispose of myself. The two methods of waste manageent available to me are composting and burning.
But I will not compost or burn anything that could be recycled.
The rubbish I will create will be compostable and food related- potato peelings and the like and that's not waste but plant food!
