Cutting Plastic Waste - Brands That Are Making A Difference

Cutting Plastic Waste - Brands That Are Making A Difference

May 15, 2019

Some of the biggest brands are being confronted by consumers about their plastic waste and poor approach to sustainability. And it is about time! The combined plastic waste of major consumer brands is staggering!

We at Movingbeans are trying hard to address the growing waste problem by offering Nespresso-compatible coffee capsules which contain no plastic nor any aluminum, whilst ensuring that the coffee keeps fresh. We are not the only brand, however. which is trying hard to make a difference:

King of Shaves

Men's grooming brand King of Shaves has today committed to eliminate single-use plastic from its products by 2023, spearheading the transition with the launch of its new 'Code Zero' range of lifetime-use, refillable products.

No Plastic Shop

Izzy Crouch launched a new shop called "No Plastic Shop" in January 2018 and was back then the first plastic-free retailer across a variety of products. Being a swimmer, she was inspired to start her venture after noticing the plastic pollution on the beach. Kudos, Izzy!

Boots' Bamboo Toothbrush

It is not only the small, but also Boots decided to slowly go sustainable. And why not start with a 100% biodegradable and sustainably-grown bamboo toothbrush? The packaging is eco-friendly, the box and inside wrapper are made from recycled materials, and can be thrown out with the organic trash.  This toothbrush is vegan, cruelty-free and verified BPA free.

Small and large brands are trying to make a difference. In the end, however, it is really down to us as consumers to stir the brands into a more sustainable future.

Want to discover something new, for the hot summer days? What about drinking an iced espresso? Here a recipe from coffee colleagues from down-under, Pea Berrys Coffee Roasters. What about sugar? It turns out that the human body perceives food as less sweet at lower temperatures. In other words, the espresso will naturally taste more sour than when served hot. If you want to add sugar, remember that sugar does not dissolve that easily in your cold drink. Either add it into the hot espresso before you pour it onto the ice; or use liquid sugar.

Humanity's largest human waste has a name: the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP). It is by far the largest of five offshore plastic accumulation zones in our oceans. The GPGP is floating halfway between California and Hawaii. It covers an astonishing 1.6m km2. Let us repeat this number: 1,600,000 km2, or more than six (!) times the size of the UK.
