    Had a look at the bug hotels Michelle and the team built recently, if you havent have a walk past d82 towards the train bridge and have a look, they look brilliant, definitely should have more on site

    Got a toilet with short/long flush?  know its habit to always select long, but try where possible using short flush to reduce water usage

    Start collecting your soft plastics, many places have started to accept soft plastic for recycling, i know my tesco does, stops them going to landfill

      I do it as well! I'm really sorry to be the bearer of bad news but tesco has pretty bad traceability of where their soft plastic goes...

      My local tesco has also started doing this. Its great, although they do seem to move it about a bit so its not always in the same place. Not helpful. My local tesco also have a Loop area which is great!
