Waste

Some things simply cannot be reused, recycled or repurposed.
Before buying them ask yourself if you really need them?

Video tapes should not be thrown away or put in your household recycling bin. The casing of a VHS tape is a plastic which takes centuries to degrade and the magnetic tape inside is coated with hazardous materials which is toxic when left to degrade in landfills.
