The cuts that count

There has been a lot of talk of cuts since the budget was brought down but here is one cut that may a difference to the environment, unlike some of the ones we have heard about.

If you buy milk or other products for that matter that come in bottles where the plastic ring remains after the lid is removed or have plastic rings holding products together then please make sure you cut the ring/s before recycling.

No matter how good we are in disposing of the bottles or other bits of plastic like bags there is always a chance they may fall out of the bin or off the truck on the way to being recycled. The plastic rings and bags injure thousands of seabirds and other fauna a year when they become stuck around their necks or feet or are ingested.
