How to recycle your wine bottles

I am not a big drinker of alcohol, but I love to have a nice glass of red or white wine (depending on what meal I am eating.) So, I don’t normally have many empty bottles around. But there are occasions when I throw quite big parties and have guests (before the lockdown) and I end up with a lot of ’empties’.

Often, I will wash the bottles and use them as candle holders, but there are only so many candle holders you need and so much space you have to put them.

However, in the spirit of wanting to save the planet earth, I came up with this solution. I wash the bottles and then pour dry grains into them: rice, semolina, lentils, couscous, popcorn (yes, we will count popcorn as a dry grain). It works really well. The bottles look nice, they keep the contents clean and free from creepy-crawlies and I have done my bit for the environment.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Ines Newell. I am a qualified life coach currently completing my postgraduate certificate in business and executive coaching with Leeds Beckett University. Before the covid-19 pandemic, I was a part-time self-employed beauty therapist (since 2007.) I specialised in waxing treatment. I enjoyed meeting people and listening to their lives and struggles. It is this that inspired me to get into coaching and mentoring. When I shared my struggles and pains with my customers and how I had overcome they told me that I was an inspiration to them and they had made changes in their lives that previously they had not thought possible. The decision to permanently close my beauty business was hard, but I wanted to do something new. Something where I could learn from other people’s experiences, something where others could learn from mine, and together we could expand our understanding, knowledge and wisdom of the world and each other. I look forward to learning and growing together. Ines Newell
