Recycle right and make a difference for future generations

Be informed: It can still be confusing to know exactly what and how to recycle; if you get it wrong it can contaminate the load and your effort is wasted.

Can you please tell the big supermarkets they can keep their plastic bags.

As an environmental issue, the government has shown no leadership here, so it is apparently now up to us to pack shopping in our own assortment of bags and get it home. 

Come on, we can do this!

And thanks to the Leader for its information on recycling generally (“How you can recycle right”, August 1).

We can all dispose of batteries (Aldi), recycle responsibly, and even cease buying plastic bottles of water (some of which have been proven to contain more fluoride than our lovely tasting tap water - War on Waste, ABC). 

The environment is precious. We live in a beautiful part of the world.  No good waiting for government to act on this.

We can make a difference for future generations.

Witnessed at the recent Sutherland 2 Surf : a mother and daughter were taking the free bottled water being provided and pouring the water out over the grass so they could collect the empty containers and claim their 10 cents recycling credit.
