Wow, I normally don't have much time to post, but I shall here. I work as a nurse. I am probably the most annoying nurse to work with as I am forever getting people to save this or recycle that.

I think that when you work in a job like mine and see loads of waste, it is an opportunity to do a bit more to save the environment. Just recently our bosses decided to bring in disposable medicine receptacles, the ones the we have to give out with the medication in. I put I stop to that and we are back to washing out the plastic ones.

I remember the old milk bottles delivered by the milkman, what a good way of recycling that was and we all did it without even thinking.

Hello there

Good work by the sound of it. You are right about the milkman thing, I think it was down to a glass shortage in the 70's or 80's or something when milk bottles got replaced with plastic. Otherwise we would all still be recycling, without thinking about it. I was recently over in Germany, over there you have to pay a deposit on all glass bottles, I don't see why we cannot do that here.

In my previous job I used to do work in Christchurch NZ, and at the plant they had old style glass milk bottles! It brought back many memories :lol:
