Planet Ark's National Recycling Week enables positive recycling actions by councils, schools, workplaces and individuals.
How to (nicely) tell your neighbours 'Don't Bag It'
Do you get annoyed when you see recycling in plastic bags? New research shows that lots of people who put their recycling in the bin in a bag genuinely think the items will be recycled. Unfortunately they're wrong, recycling in plastic bags ends up in landfill. We've produce a friendly message you can print off (or send) to let your neighbours (or family and friends) know why recycling in bags is a big no no!
