Zero Waste Week: The London indies helping you switch out plastic

It’s Zero Waste Week and, while yet another national week of something usually generates a fair amount of eye-rolling in the LBC office, this one we’re keen to get behind.


Ditching the plastic is getting easier by the day – with businesses like Circla, Top up Truck, Re:Store, Greener Habits and The People’s Pantry delivering to your door and offering savings to Local Buyers Club members.


A recent study by Science Advances suggests that 91% of the world's plastic waste to date has never been recycled. Around 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans every year which is bad for marine life and bad for our health.


If you’re looking to make some simple switches to reduce the amount of rubbish you produce and move away from single-use plastic, check out the following fab companies in the Club.
