So if you’ve decided your life needs to be free from single-use plastic, and have started carrying your own reusable cutlery, we thought you might be interested in running up this lovely little accessory! I have had a beautiful piece of fabric I bought a few years back from Liberty sitting in my fabric stash waiting for the ideal project, and here it is – our Reusable Cutlery Pouch!
The motivation to make my own produce bag comes from a recent debate in the supermarket with my dear husband. For a long time, I have been content with weighing my produce and sticking the sticker onto one of the items. He did not share the same thoughts, however, and was putting potatoes into plastic bags!! So this is my attempt to dissuade him from this habit, although he looked unimpressed by my creation, and is yet to try it out! Regardless of what he thinks, I love it, and it is so easy to do!
We wrote to Clipper Teas who have just announced the launch of the world’s first ‘plastic free’ tea bag, to ask if their packaging was plastic free! Here is their response.
We buy James Wellbeloved dog food anyway because frankly, it is a great product, but when somebody asked about buying dog food in recyclable packaging it got me thinking! I had always assumed the packaging was paper, and therefore recyclable, but I thought I had better check! And here is what I was told! Disappointing!
We contacted Twinings Tea to ask them about the plastic pouch that they use inside their boxes of loose leaf tea. This is their response!
So what a delight to start a new year with the environment so high up on everyone’s agenda. Whatever you thought of the Prime Minister’s speech on the 25 year Environmental Plan, the fact that she felt the need to make it, means that the Government think there’s an appetite for matters environmental at the moment, which is good news indeed. The Attenborough factor has to be high on the list reasons as to why this has suddenly popped into the public consciousness but that’s fine – he’s a legend. However, we think that in order to tackle the problem, we need to have a very long hard look at how we got to where we are in the first place.
