So the challenge I set of plastic free is going OK and tbh I set it to try and not make any waste at all that can not be recycled.
Last night I was down about life so I bought coke and pizza and yes both them are recyclable so that good.
I had to go out and get some food shopping and forgot to take a bad with me but that OK I put the paper bags in my bike tailor (so not even used and petrol) that I had on as I needed to go and get a printer from some one that I found off free cycles (raaaaaaa free printer).
Now as I am writing I realise that the bags in the bin are plastic and will go to land fill (any hints around this problem please - the bin people refuse to take bins away with out them being in bags)
The second issue is that I have had to turn my computer on to right this mail and this is using electric sourced from the mains. Is anyone able to suggest a way that I can charge my laptop up with out using mains electric please.
