Go Green With Kitchen Caddies And Home Recycling

If you are someone who already recycles and is passionate about reducing the amount of waste in our landfills, then this number will be significant to you.

However, it can be frustrating at times trying to recycle. Making sure you bring the rubbish out on the right days, reminding family members which trash goes where, and being vigilant about separating out your plastics and papers can all be time-consuming. You may have also struggled with deciding what type of container to keep in your home for recycling. It can be a hassle keeping the rubbish from the recyclables, but you are keen on doing so; therefore, a solution must be found. There are various solutions available that can make your life a little easier while you do your part to “be green”. A kitchen caddy that also doubles as a kerbside caddy is an ideal choice for households that have a significant amount of recyclables. Although they range in size, a 23 litre caddy can hold a week’s worth of recycling; if you choose the kind that has a lockable lid, you will not have to worry about related odours seeping out.

If you are an avid composter than a food waste caddy will help you put table scraps to good use after dinner. In two sizes that are small enough to be discrete but large enough to hold enough scraps for a few days, the 5 litre and 7 litre containers can easily fit in your kitchen or pantry. An ideal food caddy also has a lockable lid to seal in odours that can develop while also preventing insects from being tempted to look for their dinner in your kitchen. Even the smallest members of your family can help clean up after meals by putting their scraps into a sturdy yet sleek food waste caddy. Take a moment to think about these statistics from the green watchdog agency Recycle Now: 8 billion steel food cans, 6.6 billion newspapers, 3.3 billion aluminium cans, and 2.1 billion wine glass bottles were recycled last year alone. That is a lot of rubbish! However, it is rubbish that has been reused and re-purposed all thanks to people like you who take the time each day to set aside your recyclables. In homes across the country thousands of families are doing their part to fill their kitchen caddies with item that can be recycled, helping to keep environment just a little more green.
