Top tips to live green and do good this Recycle Week, and beyond!

The past 18 or so months have been challenging in so many ways, including our efforts to be green. Thanks to a renewed dependence on single use plastic, the necessity to wash clothing, uniforms and equipment on a higher temperature and using cleaning products more so than ever before, it has been tricky to be green while also following government guidance to keep everyone safe. However, the small habits we already do, such as recycling, make a huge difference when it comes to fighting climate change and living more sustainably.

Recycle Week is Recycle Now’s flagship annual event which is a celebration of recycling across the nation. Now in its 18th year, the theme for 2021 is Step It Up! There are so many ways to recycle different household items now, from makeup containers, to tinfoil, PPE and food waste.

Below are some articles that discuss how to recycle different items, tips on creating and working in a greener setting, and everyday habits we can adopt that make a big difference:
