Le Recyclage en Vacances # 5: Le Shopping

Well Hello!

After spending almost a week up in the mountains, my sister took me on a shopping spree to treat me to a belated birthday present. A 40 minute drive to the bottom of the valley.

Admittedly, I was a bit distracted by this particular sight...what...a recycling centre in a shopping mall?

No wonder the Swiss are good at recycling, if it's a case of drop off your bottles and cans before you hit the sales. Look carefully and you'll see that there's even space for empty coffee capsules.

It's just a shame I had nothing to recycle before heading off to buy a new purse.

The things you learn eh, when you're out on your travels with your eyes open a little wider than normal.

Well I can't wait to get home and share the rest of Swiss recycling gossip. I may end up revealing what's happened to my old purse. If I feel brave that is!

Until then...there's some mileage to get I will see you soon back in good old Angleterre.

I think we are getting the hang of it now - and being able to continue recycling on holiday is a bonus (value for money so to speak). Sounds as though you have had a great time - look forward to hearing some more when you are safely back at home and raring to go (recycling)! A x

Have a safe journey and I'm looking forward to hearing all about that purse of yours. I hope it hasn't ended up in the landfill somewhere ;)
