A Life Less Plastic

  • Why, who, what, where, when and how ...

It can keep things fresher for longer, it’s tough, durable and adaptable… it fills up waste sites and oceans at an eye-watering rate. Plastic is a problem, and we want to do something about it. We’ve been monitoring and adjusting our plastic usage for some time and now we can crank things up a notch to lead a life less plastic.

To find out what we’re doing, and how you can do your bit too, read our three articles (in the right-hand column): the first outlines the complex problem, the second looks at how we’re tackling these issues at Better Food, and the third shares some ideas about what we can all do.
