What is the current situation with litter in the UK?

The problem is two-fold: the waste infrastructure and people’s behaviour. How often do we see bins overflowing with rubbish? But at the same time, how many of us keep walking to find the next available bin? Did you know that 61% of Britons litter? Unfortunately for too long waste has been a case of out [...]

What happens to your Sustain products if they end up in the ocean?

They stay there. It’s a problem. We don’t like it. And it’s the same when we litter the land with anything too. Our Sustain™ products however are not designed to end up in the natural environment and not even in a landfill. They are designed for a very specific waste stream for a very specific [...]

Litter in general is abhorrent – what’s more heartbreaking than seeing our beautiful planet contaminated by human rubbish? When you throw rubbish in the park or see someone fly-tipping a bin, the rubbish is no longer contained. It leaks into our environment: it’s in our parks, our water streams, our oceans, and therefore our food [...]
