We all know by now that we should be recycling as much as possible--but are we using that principle to its full potential? As a lifelong green campaigner and environmental activist I'm passionate about recycling, and I've started this blog to talk a little more about all the little extras you can do. I'll be covering craft projects you can do with the kids, tips for starting and maintaining your own compost pile, ways to help your local recycling plant out with the way you put your rubbish in the recycling bin and tips for "upcycling" some of the things you throw away the most.

Aluminium is one of the most successful scrap metals of all when it comes to recycling. It has been recycled for over a century, and nearly all of the metal that has ever been put to use is still being used, having been repurposed in some way. Although aluminium ore extraction does come at an environmental cost, not least because of the amount of energy it takes, this metal is one that continues to be a winner in terms of finding new uses in all sorts of industries.
