How to recycle, all over the home

01 July 2016

Reduce, reuse, recycle. These are three magic words that we build our business around. And of course, our interior designer Martina came up with a few easy and stylish ways for you to get the job done at home.

1. KEEP A COUPLE OF BASKETS IN THE BEDROOM for clothes you’re just not feeling anymore, or ones your kids have outgrown. The same goes for their toys. Once the baskets are full, give them away to friends, family or even charity, and feel the relief of a lightened load.

2. WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THE COSMETICS AND TOILETRIES PACKAGING? Divide your bathroom trash can into three sections: one for paper, one for plastic, one for non-recyclable trash.

3. YOUR HOME IS FULL OF THINGS TO RECYCLE, though they might not collect quickly. Create a space for them that’s both convenient and hidden in the bottom basket of this hanging planter. The long leaves from the plants above will keep your recyclables mostly out of sight.

4. GIVE YOUR RECYCLABLES A FUNCTION before they head out the door. Tied up magazines and newspapers can give you a place to sit while you’re getting ready. And here’s an extra tip: why not donate your finished magazines to a local dentist or doctor’s office?

5. THE KITCHEN IS WHERE IT ALL HAPPENS. You go through endless amounts of recycling here, so a couple of large, labelled bins that are kept out in the open will make your daily routine streamlined and easy as can be.
