Easter recycling

Over the years chocolate egg packaging has been a hot topic due to the high proportion that couldn’t be recycled. This is slowly changing with major retailers promising to reduce their packaging which is egg-cellent!

Show a little love to the planet – pick Easter treats with the recycling bin in mind so we can recycle as much as possible this bank holiday.
