Recycling on the go - 1000 Bin Challenge

Sometimes you meet someone who changes your life for the better. For me that person was Karen from The Rubbish Diet. Karen was the one that made me feel better about myself by encouraging me to slim my bin down and recycle more and was only a tweet away to help me if I had any issues. Anyway, the other week it was announced in The Observer (What? I read it occasionally!) that "Karen of Bury St Edmunds embarrasses her kids by taking photos of municipal trash cans" and I had a sneaky suspicion that I knew what this was about!

What better way to promote recycling on the go than by taking photos of recycling bins across the country? So  the 1000 bins challenge was created... and Big Boy and I had to join in when we were out shopping this week.

And just so you can all see where we were Recycling, it was on the corner of Lloyds Court on Secklow Gate in Central Milton Keynes... look I even got you a map.

So go make Karen, Rachelle and their friend Shedwyn happy and take a picture of you and a recycling bin!
