One of our household goals for this year is to reduce the amount of rubbish that goes into our bins. We're actually quite good at not putting much into the regular bin, but our recycle bin is usually totally full by the time the council comes to collect it. And while recycling is good, having less rubbish in the first place is even better.
One small, easy thing I did recently was to make some vegie bags for taking to the supermarket. We use 'green' bags for our normal groceries, but then you always get stuck with the little plastic bags for fruit and veg. So I made a variety of these little drawstring bags in voile (which I got from Reverse Garbage - cheap cheap!) to use instead. The voile is see-through, so it's easy when going through the checkout.
Can you see our little mushrooms in there?
