And it's better to have it in landfill because it's all plastic and that's one way of locking up carbon for a long long time. Quite apart from no longer choking turtles and strangling albatrosses. But re-use beats re-cycle and last week I spent a couple of hours in my yard at home under the broiling sun [wearing my hat instead of sun-cream] reducing the raffle to its component parts:
- 42 orange floats (two cracked) in three different designs
- 30 fathoms of 10mm white rope in 12 lengths
- 22 fathoms of 6mm blue cord in 20 lengths
- 5 litres of monofilament, frayed ends, ugly splices, and pieces of rope too short to keep.
