Buy recycled

While collecting materials for recycling is very important, it's only half the story.

Buying products made from recycled materials helps to keep a demand for things like recycled newspapers and plastic bottles.

Recycled products in supermarkets

You will find goods made from recycled materials in your supermarket such as:

  • recycled paper notepads
  • toilet tissue
  • kitchen roll
  • aluminium foil
