Came across this on Twitter.

I'm about to fish the lid for Mr JG's Benecol bottle out of the rubbish bin! (lucky we don't get lots of horrid waste mixed together here!)

That's really good news - the council here also recycle plastic bottle tops too.

Thanks for passing that on JG - will start saving them!

Oh dear. Mr JG has just discovered that we are now keeping plastic bottle tops for Lush. Don't think he is particularly thrilled

I find it easier not to tell Mr C many of the things I get up to. Saves on arguments! Laughing

Well, I took a small carrier bag of bottle tops into Lush in Worcester at half term, and they are collecting them. I don't think they're expecting very many, as the cardboard collecting box was smaller than a little waste paper basket. I left the assistant with an overflowing container!!

I'll go along with that. Particularly when it involves Asian hookers.
