Single-use #plastic items such as #straws, stirrers and plastic-stemmed cotton buds have a significant impact on our environment, both on land and in our seas and rivers when they are either littered or discarded incorrectly after use. A recent study suggested 8.5 billion plastic straws are thrown away each year in the UK. To help tackle this problem, we’ve published a consultation document which will consider the best way of restricting or banning the sale or supply of single-use plastic items.

CATCHING UP WITH HAPPINESS Listening to my favorite new podcast @bjornochnavid these two test talking penguins manage to reach me all the way across the “pond” to a beach in Northern California. I’m reflecting on their conversation about the importance to just be so our happiness can catch up. They mentioned in their pod that happiness is something that exists behind you and the only way to truly invite it in is to be still and to pause. I thought this was a very beautiful image to wait up for your own happiness especially in a society where everyone is constantly going somewhere, doing something and being someone. Happiness does not exist in front of you, in things or people it’s something you have to wait up for everyday. Let’s all just pause and reflect and try to invite in our own real happiness. Thank you guys for a great podcast and for being really real men!
Péssimo exemplo de design! Uma embalagem feita pela natureza é tirada e substituída por plástico. Se não fosse suficiente, é acrescentado um canudo. Em plena era em que se discute sustentabilidade e redução de plástico, uma empresa aposta no mercado irresponsável. De quem é a responsabilidade? Da empresa ou dos consumidores? -//- The worst design example! Take of the pack made by nature and replace it by plastic. If it is not enough, a straw is add. In times when packaging waste is discussed, a company bets on the irresponsible consumer market. Who fault is it? From company or consumers? . . . . . . #design#packaging#packagingdesign#embalagem#sustentabilidade#susteinable#baddesign#ecologia#ecology#plasticocean#cleanocean
