I am having problems deciding what to do with the following items...
How can these products avoid the waste stream? It is too easy to throw them away, rather than to do something with them...because in the case of Umbrella and Slippers - as well as broken they are also really dirty.
Umbrella - The wind got the better of it in the end, and the handle snapped.
Slippers - Worn them almost every day for 2 years.
Dirty Makeup bag ( could just wash this, but I'm concerned as to what would happen to the outside layer - I will handwash this but not sure how easily the combination of black eye shadow/mascara and leaky foundation would wash off!)
