Even Friends of The Earth Use Plastic Bottles!

This is taken from a BBC News report a couple of weeks ago and shows a guy from Friends of the Earth (Michael Warhurst, waste and resources campaigner) being interviewed about recycling and there’s a plastic bottle in the background! True, the production team may have put it there to show the sort of things that need recycling but I think it more highlights the fact that it’s very hard to get away from plastic if even someone as environmentally conscious as him uses them.

The story was about ‘pay-as-you-throw’ schemes which personally I don’t think will ever work, although they showed somewhere in Holland where it does so no doubt it’ll be brought into the UK soon, but how it works in a block of flats I don’t know.

If you’re interested in the video, go to http://news.bbc.co.uk/ and in the search box at the top type in “pay as you throw” and it’s the first result in the audio and video search from 22 August. Sorry I haven’t got a direct link!
