RETHINK RUBBISH @ HOME
Come on, admit it. We’ve got clothes in our wardrobe that we haven’t worn for years and we know we’ll never wear again. Taking your old clothes to the local charity shop or recycling bin is a great way of getting rid of a load of rubbish and creating extra space at the same time! And it’s all for a good cause. Charities such as The Salvation Army, Oxfam, TRAID and Scope are big collectors of old clothes, either through charity shops and recycling banks or for sorting and selling on, often abroad.
Buying second-hand clothes is now definitely in vogue too, with dedicated followers of fashion such as Kylie and Geri Hallowell leading the way. Vintage boutiques offer ranges of designer classics, but can be a bit on the expensive side, so why not raid your local charity shop to pick up a real bargain? You can create your own distinct look and feel good about your recycling effort.
Hate junk mail? Around one million tones of junk mail and magazines get binned each year! But it’s easy to cut down on the rubbish in your bin by registering with the Mailing Preference Service. Send them your details and they’ll make sure that you don’t receive piles of unwanted offers and advertisements through your letterbox.
A massive 60% of the contents of your dustbin can be recycled. So why not give your bin a break and drop off your paper, card, glass bottles, jars and cans at the recycling banks located at most supermarkets? By doing this you’ll reduce your household waste by nearly one third!
Did you know that if you’re really clever, there’s £34 million worth of empty aluminum drink cans in the UK just waiting to be collected and recycled? The reasons that aluminum is really valuable and the sort that’s made into the billions of drinks cans we see on our supermarket shelves can be recycled and used time and time again to make new drinks cans.
We produce over 26 million tones of household rubbish in the UK every year so there’s plenty of scope for us to Rethink Rubbish in the home! By thinking about the types of goods we buy, how we use them and where we dispose of them, we can dramatically reduce the amount of rubbish our homes produce. Whilst we can’t get rid of rubbish altogether, there are hundreds of ways in which we can cut down on what we throw away. So, whether we’re recycling, finding new uses for “junk” or simply reducing what we create in the first place, with a little effort, we can all make our homes cleaner and greener!

America is almost completely dependent on the automobile, and this has been a terrible mistake. Even in the 1950s, a large percentage of Americans used public transport.

Today, the entire American lifestyle is dictated by the motor car. Homes are far from work, and shopping is far from everything. In between there is nothing buying ugly stretches of concrete or asphalt roads for the motor car.
