Amathyst 19 | 2,702 14 Jan 2007 #1I wanted to ask if Polish people are as in to recycling as the English, we have been made aware of how much of a disposable society we live in and albeit a bit late we are starting to actually take care of what we throw away - and how we treat our environment My Parents have 4 bins and this is the norm these days.1. Plastic2. Glass3. Paper4 general rubbishOh and they have a compost bin too.We are told that aerosols are bad and that we should use electricity carefully, cars use unleaded petrol and have catalytic converters so minimised emissions. Agencies have been set up for women with babies who want to use terrie nappies they clean and supply the nappies and the cost is actually lower than purchasing disposable, landfill sites are running out of space and since we use circa. 3 billion disposable nappies a year it's a big problem. The weather is another big issue, this week we have had storms and rain and a few weeks ago we had hailstone, today the sun is shining bright yet the weather forecast tells us it's looking like we're in for a big freeze and snow! Products in supermarkets brag that they are recycled and generally sell at a higher price, yet you'll find them next t.v. dinners in disposable packaging, it's all very contradictory really but I like a lot of other people take it serious since I consider it important not just for me but for future generations to be able to enjoy a normal life.
