So with the New year we all feel the need to make the usual resolutions, exercise more, eat better, sleep better etc etc. These are all great healthy changes personally but have you ever thought of making better resolutions for the environment or even in the household.

There are so many things that we can alter personally to make a massive change to our environment.
It is so hard to keep up with what can and, mostly, cannot be recycled and placed into our recycling bin. Last year, we seen the launch of recycling Ireland.ie where we learned that soft plastics, such a crisp packets and plastic packaging, cannot be placed into our recycling bin.
