Why not precycle as well as recycle?


But what does precycling mean? Well if you precycle it means that when you go shopping you only choose products which uses packaging which can be recycled.

This is a great way to cut back on the amount of garbage you product as a family.

For instance;

Buy cereal which comes in a bag rather than a bag and then a box. Cereals in bags are often cheaper than the boxed varieties.

Buy rechargeable batteries instead of the normal throw away ones.

Look for washable nappies instead of disposables.

Buy loose vegetables rather than bagged and don't use a separate plastic bag for each product. Potatoes, onions, carrots in fact all hard vegetables are fine loose to carry home.
