Gathering up the waste!

We set ourselves the task of collecting any new plastic we bought and used everyday for six days – a task far more tricky than expected. Afters days of weird looks from friends and the general public for obsessively stuffing bits of rubbish into our bags, we’ll now be doing all we can not buy these items in the first place! When we find alternatives we’ll post them on our Plastic Collections page.
