E for Good

In 2011, I set up E For Good, with Melinda Watson .We’re campaigning to reduce the amount of electrical waste (e-waste) as well as setting up systems to increase repair, reuse and efficient recycling. This is the focus of my work in 2012.

Which? on plastic bags (Aug12)

 


I’ve done a lot of speaking and writing about plastic bags!  I’ve even written a poem on the subject, for one speech I made.  Which? asked me to give them an expert view for an article in entitled ‘Plastic bags at breaking point.   As well as being interviewed on the topic, I wrote a short piece which included an action list for supermarkets to:

1.  Encourage customers to bring their own bags and reuse them as much as possible

2.  Promote recycling of all polyethylene film, along with carrier bags

3.  Close the loop and make carrier bags from recycled plastic
