The Recycling-Microplastic Conundrum

Monday, 3 December 2018 07:00:00 Europe/London

The Recycling-Microplastic Conundrum

I read an intriguing piece of news the other day. High street retailer, John Lewis, has started making towels from recycled plastic bottles[EH1] . How interesting, I thought. What a good idea. And how clever. But then I got to thinking that maybe it’s not that much of a good idea after all…

The Importance of Plastic Reduction

Monday, 19 November 2018 07:00:00 Europe/London

The Importance of Plastic Reduction

I saw a really interesting infographic the other day. It was by an American website, detailing the impact that plastic has on our planet. Now, I consider myself pretty up on these things, but the some of the statistics highlighted are frankly scary.

Did you know, for example, that every year America produces enough plastic film to shrink wrap the entire state of Texas?  That’s 268,820 square miles! And cling film is notoriously unrecyclable.

Top of the Class – The Most Popular Bottle Filler for Schools

Monday, 12 November 2018 07:00:00 Europe/London

Top of the Class – The Most Popular Bottle Filler for Schools

We work with a lot of schools at MIW Water Cooler Expert. Over the years, we’ve installed thousands of drinking water solutions. And if there’s one thing that we’ve learnt, it’s that schools, colleges and universities have very specific needs. And while there’s still room for the traditional stop and slurp drinking fountains, they don’t cater for every demographic. Teenage girls, for example, aren’t overly keen on having to wipe their chins are every drink! And yet, while bottle fillers are growing in popularity, not everyone carries a bottle on them, or wants to add to the weight of the textbooks and tech dragging at their shoulders with a sloshing drinks bottle in their bag.

Liquidating Liverpool Street Station… With Two Water Refill Stations

Monday, 5 November 2018 07:00:00 Europe/London

Liquidating Liverpool Street Station… With Two Water Refill Stations

All this year, the MIW team has been working with the London Mayor’s Office and the #OneLess campaign to facilitate the London Refill Project (LRP). The aim is the installation of 50 water bottle refill stations in high footfall areas around the capital, in a drive to reduce the purchase of single-use plastic drinks bottles. MIW’s role is the donation and installation of the refill units. So far, it’s been a really exciting project to be involved with.

Plastic Waste? Britain’s Packing It

Sunday, 28 October 2018 16:43:33 Europe/London

Plastic Waste? Britain’s Packing It

It’s always nice when you read reports on pollution and see that the UK is meeting its targets. We’ve reached the stage where [almost] everyone knows what pollution is, and what it means for the environment and the creatures that live in it – including us. So it’s reassuring when you see statistics that show that we’re doing our bit as a country. It makes that annoying extra big green wheelie bin filling up the garden feel less of an encumbrance.

Flat-Packing the Plastic Problem – IKEA Join Sustainability Movement

Thursday, 25 October 2018 07:00:00 Europe/London

Flat-Packing the Plastic Problem – IKEA Join Sustainability Movement

When you first start getting interested in a cause, such as cutting back on waste plastic, it can feel a bit like a pipe dream. Yeah, of course it would be nice if we could stop plastic clogging our rivers and oceans, and of course it would be amazing if big business got on board, but realistically, it’s never going to happen. And then it does. And a domino effect takes place, where one after the other, businesses, institutions and governments do their bits, and you see that it’s actually making a difference. This is why, today, I am writing about IKEA.

Because There is no Planet B

Because There is no Planet B

I’ve just discovered a new brand and I’m very excited about it. Why? Because not only do they make clothing and shoes from recycled materials, but they have recently released a line of shoes specifically crafted from plastic retrieved from the ocean. How good is that?

A Bude-iful Crowd-Funding Idea

A Bude-iful Crowd-Funding Idea

ReFILL Bude empower collective change with a campaign to bring a water bottle refill station to the town.

In this blog, I often talk about the ways in which business can help to facilitate change. How the likes of Adidas, Network Rail and ZSL London Zoo are leading the way in the fight against plastic, through the provision of free-to-use drinking fountains and sports bottle refill stations for their customers. What it’s easy to forget, though, is that there’s a whole lot to be said for people power. And Bude is currently setting a terrific example of that.
