The UKs Waste and Resources Programme (WRAP) has estimated that the UK will discard some 3000 tonnes of packaging from around 80 million Easter Eggs this year.
If you would like to know how to avoid unwanted Easter egg packaging here are some hints:
- Look out for an eco friendly egg with minimal packaging.
- If you can’t avoid packaging pass over the plastic stuff in favour of more easily recycled cardboard and foil.
- Try some eco alternatives.
- If you are sending your foil for recycling via your kerbside collection try to scrunch all of your seperate pieces into one ball so that any small pieces don’t get lost.
