So many fantastic young people are campaigning for a better world and I believe that they will make a real difference, so I have decided to follow their lead.
My apologies to my packaging supplier but I have decided to send out my customers orders in recycled boxes.
So if a box arrives from a well known garden retailer that you're not expecting, don't panic! Your cuddly bunny or wooden train will be inside, safely wrapped, and at no further cost to our lovely planet.
Toy packaging generally consists of different materials such as cardboard, paper and plastic. Some of these are recyclable, others are not so these will need to be separated before recycling.
Remove plastic windows from cardboard boxes before recycling - the plastic window should be put in the rubbish bin
Flatten cardboard to fit more into your household recycling bin
Plastic blisters marked PET or PETE can be recycled by most local authorities but please check with your council.
Wire ties should be kept aside as these are not generally recyclable but could be re-used for numerous things such as tying up plants in the garden or resealing half used packets of frozen vegetables
Remove the rope or ribbon handles from gift bags - these can be re-used or should be placed in the rubbish bin
