As there has been a great increase in awareness on the amount of excess plastic waste produced by the UK, local business and authority have looked to ways of helping to reduce waste and improve production methods and systems.
A UK inventor, James Longcroft, is campaigning for plastic-free bottles. He has created a paper-based bottle that decomposes in air or water within 3 weeks. But it goes much further than that. This inventor uses recycled paper supplied by local businesses, helping to alleviate paper wastage as well. Through niche experimentation, Longcroft was able to come up with a formula to coat the inside of the bottles to allow for safe consumption. This coating is even safe for the soil and for marine life to eat.
On a greater scale, we have the example of the War on Single-Use Plastic in the form of new policy implemented by KPMG. They have decided to ban plastic cups across all UK offices. They have provided their staff with reusable water bottles which great accommodation and adoption by their staff.
KPMG is currently looking to further their efforts by removing all plastic cutlery from their offices too. However, implementation has not been as speedy as that of the plastic cups. But progress is progress!
