Eco-tips:  The location of your fridge can make a difference in how energy efficient it is. Make sure it is out of direct sunlight and not close to the oven. Keep a gap between it & the wall so air can circulate.

Recycle Walker’s crisp packets

Walkers are aiming to make all their packaging 100% recyclable, compostable or biodegradable by 2025. In the meantime, they’ve partnered with recyclers TerraCycle to make it easier to recycle crisp packets and reduce the impact on the environment. Any crisp packets can be collected.
