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:

Products made from recycled garden waste
We currently produce the Genuine Jersey soil improver and mulch from recycled garden waste.
Genuine Jersey soil improver and mulch are entirely natural products, produced from composted garden waste and peat free. They are pleasant to handle and environmentally friendly. Our soil improver was awarded "Best New Product 2005 / 6" by the Genuine Jersey Products Association.
Our soil improver adds life to your soil and your plants, and is available in bulk (1,000 litres in bulk bags or loose) and in small quantities.
Our mulch is an attractive and cost-effective way of retaining soil moisture, controlling weed growth and preventing soil erosion. Available in minimum quantities of 1,000 litres in bulk bags or loose. Unfortunately stock is currently unavailable but we hope to have more available later in the year.
