It is alleged that a large group of travellers has recently been illegally collecting waste from people who paid to have their waste removed, then fly-tipping it where they were parked up, near the Olympic Park in Stratford, east London.
When it comes to protecting the environment, the smallest of changes to the way we do things in our day-to-day lives can make a big difference, and the more of us who make these changes, the better. We have collected together five simple ideas of ways to be kinder to the environment below, so we can all start those changes today.
This competition has now closed. Thank you to all who entered.
September means Zero Waste Week – a week we love, and always get involved with. Alongside sharing relevant content all week on our social channels this year, we decided it would also be fun to give away a Zero Waste Lunch Kit.
Of all the zero waste challenges in life, lunch is a big one. After all, how many of us grab lunch from a local shop or café, which involves all manner of ‘single-use’ plastics? Even if you pack your own lunch at home, avoiding waste can be very tricky unless you plan it well – many people use cling film, foil, and sandwich bags, purely out of habit.
So, how can you pack a zero waste lunch? With a zero waste lunch kit, of course! With the right kit, you can easily pack a lunch at home, avoiding all unnecessary waste.
