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. We’re always on the look out for ideas and products that will lead us towards a life less plastic.

To find out what we’re doing, and how you can do your bit too, read our three articles: the first, When Did Plastic Become Fantastic? outlines the complex problem, the second, Better Food’s Journey looks at how we’re tackling these issues at Better Food, and the third, How Can We All Contribute shares some ideas about what we can all do.
