New to worm farms or need a refresher! This image gives you a quick go to on worms favourite foods and the things they are not so keen on!

On a side note, a worm farm is a great Christmas present as you don't need much space and there is no heavy lifting/turning required. Just make sure you keep them out of the hot sun!

Is seafood part of your Christmas celebrations? If so, this tip is for you!

Please note - not all councils accept food scraps in the organics/green bin so make sure you check with your local council!

If you haven't bought all of your Christmas presents yet, check out this ethical hierarchy of gift giving - it might give you some ideas.

If you are organised and have already got yours sorted, where do you sit on the hierarchy?

Share some of your best ethical gift ideas (which will be particularly helpful for some of us! 😉 )

My family gets World Vision/Oxfam gifts like piglets, school books, immunisations, solar lights etc. We don't need more stuff, so it's an opportunity to give to those who don't even have the basics.

I feel like “regifting” should be a level on there too!

A broken glass or plate is almost inevitable at Christmas (at least in my kitchen!).

Ceramics, kitchen glasses and crystal glass cannot be recycled, so must go in the waste bin

Broken glasses, crockery and ceramics can be crushed to become road base, it's just that the government won't fund a seperate collection process for items like this. There is nothing that can't be recycled/reused if the political will is there.

What about all the glass jars and bottles that break being tipped into the rubbish truck?

From what I understand, these products are treated differently to your jars, bottles etc to withstand heat, hence why you can recycle jars and bottles, but not kitchen glasses. I am no expert, but I recall reading it a few weeks back.

Why are kitchen glasses not recyclable (as glass jars are)?

This happens to me way too often! I always wrap them carefully in a paper bag and plastic bags and then into the red waste bin (in Victoria).

Yes KESAB environmental solutions what should we do with glass jars and lets say bottles which are empty and clean??????

I've been told different??

Oh no, now I feel bad about all of the broken glasses that I've put in the recycling over the years 🙁
