Down & Out Rating System:

Over the next few months we’ll be visiting all the places on the map and talking to the people who work there, making some friends along the way. Based on the following criteria we’ll give the places a score out of five for how plastic friendly they are. It’s not meant to criticise but rather encourage and help businesses to understand their own plastic consumption and waste. Each bullet point is worth a star:

  • Sells alternatives to plastic items that encourage reuse
  • Provides an option, such as a paper bag, to transport goods home
  • Doesn’t group together otherwise loose items into plastic packaging
  • Significant majority of items sold aren’t packaged in plastic
  • No single use items such as cutlery, take-away cups or single use small plastic bag
