Everything Glittered is not Recyclable: Is this the End of Christmas Sparkle?

Since it’s already mid-November, it means the holiday season is officially here. You’ll know it is from how our supermarkets are filled-to-the-brim with ‘Everything Christmas’, and our televisions are now flooded with Christmas-themed ads. #LeafyBlinders wins Christmas btw.

You may well wonder what this has to do with bags. As always it highlights the environmental burden of using single-use plastic bags… But fear not!
