CHRISTMAS IS JUST a few weeks away (sorry) and no doubt you’ve been thinking long and hard about your list for Santa.

But have you considered any other lists you might be on? Such as the Naughty or Nice Recycling list? You don’t want to be on the Naughty Recycling list, that’s for sure. Are you, though?

Let’s find out.

1. Do you recycle during the rest of the year?
I'll stick the odd bit in
Of course

No, sure it all ends up in the same place
Most of the time
2. What will you do with all that extra Christmas packaging?
See what I can reuse and recycle
Recycle it, obviously

I'll see what fits in the recycling bin and dump the rest
Throw it away of course
3. Do you use recycled wrapping paper?
I make my own wrapping paper
Ah yeah, least I can do

Ain't nobody got time for that
4. Do you reuse wrapping paper?
If I can get away with it
If it looks OK

I'll use it as packaging for fragile parcels
What am I, an animal?
5. Do you make your own gifts?
No - sure I can barely manage to wrap them
If it saves me some money, why not?

I'll definitely make one or two for special people
Ah, yeah - the personal touch is always welcome
6. Do you prefer to give presents or receive?
I want all the presents
Love giving
7. Do you check if the business you're buying from recycles?
Hadn't thought of that...
I do check and will shop somewhere else if they don't

That's not my concern when shopping
I do but will still shop somewhere that doesn't if they have what I need
