Like sauerkraut, rf.
Veg in brine at room temp for a few days, then keeps in the fridge.

If anyone is interested to reduce the amount of General Waste, Boots is doing a recycle scheme to collect all health care and well being products that are not normally recycled such as toothbrushes, Toothpaste tubes, make up and other stuff
boots.com

To help incentivise returns, Boots will reward you with 500 Advantage card reward points for every five products recycled, which is worth £5

Hmmm - a Boots near me is doing it. Wonder if we form "clubs" so that when we meet up at Runs we can also pass the "Boots recyclables" to each other?

Got something to say?

FT Article on how broken recycling is:
ft.com

Sustainability:
----------------
A growing "want" (consumption) has an impact on our world's resources. Historically we have gone through periods of frugality & eco-consciousness and always returned to the same apathy & couldn't give a damn about the environment we live in.

A linear economy means products head for the landfill. As landfills fill quickly, incinerators are now being put into place in the UK. Recycling is a broken system due to economics and incineration is simply the destruction of our resources.

The best would be for a circular economy and ways to close the loop.

Zero wasters care about their impact. On our journey to a zero waste lifestyle what are we willing to compromise on?

Resources for reducing landfill waste:

Freecycle: freecycle.org

or sell it on Ebay, car boot
Wrap: wrap.org.uk

How Stuff Works: home.howstuffworks.com

Food waste: consider composting. For cooked food waste have a look at Bokashi (FYI Anaerobic composting: http://www.alternative-energy-tutorials.com/aerobic-composting/anaerobic-composting.html)
