Here’s how some people solve the problem of the use of chemicals in cleaning products.

A cookery book featuring winning recipes from residents and restaurants across North London has been produced as a result of a recipe competition to showcase a range of tasty meals and snacks made from leftovers.
The cookbook gives leftovers such as old pasta, stale bread and even old tea bags a new lease of life as they are transformed into a series of starters, mains and desserts by 26 budding chefs from across North London.
To reduce food waste, Haringey Council along with other North London organisations are running a campaign called ‘Love Food Hate Waste’. The campaign includes roadshows, workshops, online food waste diaries, local advertising and competitions. The aim of this campaign is to reduce around 9,000 tonnes of food waste.
