Every week during Lent we are publishing an Envirotip - Lent 2 Single Use plastics

We can also creatively re-use plastic items. You can make a pan scourer using the plastic net bags that oranges/lemons/onions come in. Our you can make all manner of other things, try this website for some suggestions:
