You may not know, I did not know, I only know because it came up as I was typing a hashtag, it is Plastic Free July.
The place to begin is your local coffee shop.
Are those takeaway coffee cups compostable, do they sell reusable coffee cups, for example KeepCup, do they offer discount if bring a clean, barista friendly reusable coffee cup?
Why are you still drinking coffee in a chain, it is not drinkable coffee, they opposed the latte levy, many dodge tax, they drain money out of local economies?
As always it is indie coffee shops leading the way.
Support your local indie coffee shop. Relax with speciality coffee served in glass or ceramic. Ditch your bad takeaway habit, not unless you bring your own cup.
Question over packaging in supermarkets. Worst offenders Waitrose and M&S.
Buy fresh produce off your local market or farmers market. It will be fresher, cheaper, pick what you want and pop into a brown paper bag.
It will be interesting to see what Guildford farmers market, Winchester street food market and Godalming street food market are doing. The environmental standards on these markets appalling.
