Just to remind you, polythene is a simple plastic. It can be easily recycled any number of times – some say indefinitely.
You can tell it by its strechy feel.
It is used to make bread bags,veg sacks, toilet paper wrappings and carrier bags.
All polythene bags can be recycled through the supermarket carrier bag recycling schemes. Sainsburys even print this fact on their packaging – I saw it on their grapes the other day.
If you don’t live near a supermarket (!) with a recycling scheme, then you can send the bags to this company who run a recycling scheme.
Better still give up polythene with this the A-Z plastic free index
