To help reduce the amount of food that I throw away I have set myself the No Waste Food Challenge. Each month I will pick an ingredient commonly wasted in my household. Everyone is welcome to join in and hopefully we can provide some inspiration for using those leftovers.
Something I noticed is that by having seperate bins in the lounge and bedroom we are being lazy and mixing our recyclable and non recyclable waste. This has meant that on average we have been throwing a small bins worth or recyclable waste into the non recyclable bin every couple of weeks. I have now taken these bins away so that we are forced to place out rubbish in the right bin in the kitchen.
