Almost three quarters of London’s school children feel their parents should recycle more, a survey published by Recycle for London revealed last week. Although about half of the youngsters, aged 11-18, said that their households always recycled.
When questioned which parent did most of the recycling in the household, mums were the clear winner. According to their children, 69% of mums do the household recycling, compared to 23% of dads.
Asked how to encourage other Londoners to recycle, six out of ten said they would explain that recycled rubbish could be turned into new products.
