DON’T TRASH OUR FUTURE

Feeling confused by the many different recycling options? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered

With greenhouse gases polluting the atmosphere, waste overflowing landfills and plastic contaminating our oceans, it’s never been more important to recycle.

Recycling helps to lessen the strain we’re putting on our planet and reduce our need for raw materials, so we can preserve natural resources. However, recycling isn’t as straight forward as separating plastic from paper; certain packaging needs to be recycled in a specific way — if they’re not, they get rejected and are sent to landfill sites. Luckily, there are symbols to help us identify what to put where — we break them down.

WIDELY RECYCLED AT RECYCLING CENTRES

Take metal cans to recycling centres. Some paint can be recycled depending on your local council, too.

About Vegan Life

Over the past few years we’ve really seen veganism grow — there are more and more options for us to eat in our restaurants and shops, and vegan foods are rightly taking their share of the supermarket aisles. With the huge rise of meat-replacement products it’s never been easier to create exciting and tasty meals. With celebrity chefs like Gaz Oakley and restaurateur Loui Blake bringing veganism to new audiences with their innovative food, eating vegan is becoming a real choice for both vegans and non-vegans. It’s not only our eating habits and choices that are changing and expanding — our options when it comes to clothes and accessories are only getting broader. In this month’s fashion special Fat Gay Vegan looks at how far we’ve come, Jackie Lutz offers advice on building a cruelty-free closet, and we make shopping for your autumn wardrobe easier than ever with our pick of the best vegan products. Despite these positive changes, there’s still a lot to fight for. Melanie James investigates the cruelty behind cosmetic animal testing and we meet vegan photographer Amanda Clark who is telling the stories of beautiful farm animals, who are often cruelly overlooked. We’re really excited to share our inspiring Eco Living supplement with you this month, too. It's packed with ideas and information on some of the most pressing problems facing our planet. From how to live waste-free to the truth about fracking, we hope you’ll feel inspired to make some positive changes. See you next month
