I get through 6 bottles of feed per day, which equates to 2,190 in a year. I am pleased to say that all my packaging is now being recycled. Andy bought the recycling bin, pictured, and friends will put the items in their home bins.


The feed, called Ensure and made by Abbott, comes in plastic bottles. The lids are of a different plastic, each bottle has a shrink wrap sleeve, and a plastic straw protected by a film. There is a foil seal on the top of the bottle. Dorinda, how about contacting Abbott, to see how Ensure could be packaged with less!?! I know that you like a challenge.
