Not so much 'Green Parenting' as 'Green Lifestyle' - How does your local council deal with the disposal of big cardboard boxes?
You may find this as silly as I do, but in our area, cardboard boxes need to be put into PLASTIC BAGS before they are collected! Eh?
Imagine the fun I had after receiving a new office chair the other day! The box was big enough for a small family to live in while they wait for 'Le Shuttle' in Sangatte, Calais.
Not only that, but any plastic tape wrapped around them needs to be removed, any metal staples used must be taken out etc. Now come on! What is the point in this? Would it not be better to put the plastic bags into cardboard boxes?
