My Recycling Adventure in Paris

The Almost Neverending Recycling story

 

This is the B-side to my previous story about eating vegan food in Paris.

 

As we had been staying in the flat and cooking, we had accumulated quite a bit of recyclable waste. I thought I’d simply and swiftly dispose of it after leaving the flat myself. NOPE.

Vegan Food on a budget in Paris

Last week I had the mixed pleasure of visiting the (flooded) French capital for what I think was the 4th time, but the 1st as a relatively grown-up.

I haven’t written here in a long time.

But this does not mean that I haven’t had anything to write about; on the contrary, I have discovered and thought of more and more posts that I would like to write and share. They have been swimming in my head for a long time.

 

It has been a combination of being busy, getting busier, writer’s mental block and wanting to change the blog before starting to write again that has prevented me to so.

Mimi Joung: Maker of Vessels of Wonder

Do you ever think about how things are made?

There are so many things that we use every single day, we probably don’t even give them any thought, they’re just there waiting to be used, yet again. But how are they made? Where do they come from? What’s their journey from being raw material to being a staple of our everyday life?
