With the UK governments plans to ban all single use cutlery including forks, cups and plates I’m bringing you the best plastic free reusable alternatives.
Single use plastic is part of our daily lives, whether it’s at work with a takeaway coffee, at home with disposables for parties or out and about, think plastic spoons and forks for food.
More than half of all single use cutlery is thrown away and not recycled. This ends up as litter, destroying natural habitats and endangering wildlife, or filling up landfill which is often incinerated causing toxins to release into our atmosphere and cancerous components into the air we breathe.
Pollution doesn’t just come from the end of use, but production of single use plastics requires energy from fossil fuels resulting in carbon emissions during production and transportation.
Plastic has well and truly reached every part of the world most shockingly the arctic where microplastics have been found in the snow.
