'The difference between meaning to recycle and actually doing it is all about equipment and, critically, space. Get a smart, sturdy can crusher like this wall-mountable one from homerecycling.co.uk (£16.90) and the work’s done – and for once, your recycling bin won’t be overflowing. Kids will love demolishing tins, so they’ll get into the green routine early.'
N.B. The heavy duty can crusher shown is only suitable for crushing drinks cans and really should be wall mounted to work properly.
