While using a wooden pencil is a great ‘plastic free’ alternative, sadly it’s not a sustainable one.
Which is why we choose to hand write each and every customer address using pencils made from recycled newspaper instead.
ZW baby 👶 Nothing better than a stack of clean reusable nappies & wipes! I really don't know why reusables are promoted more in the UK and worldwide for that matter... The advantages are endless. They're easy to use, a BIG money saver, SUPER cute and soft on babies bum instead of disposable ones with plastic, you don't fill the bin every other day with wipes and nappies (& no, you don't have to touch poo!) We've used @bambinomio nappies & @cheekywipes for 8 weeks now - both are great products 💚
The amount of plastic waste in the ocean is set to triple in a decade unless urgent action is taken, a major report has warned.
The world’s seas face various other problems including warming oceans and metal and chemical pollution, the Foresight Future of the Sea Report for the Government said.
The scientists behind the report warned of the danger of the oceans being "out of sight, out of mind", with more known about the surface of Mars and the Moon than the deep sea bed.
Work is beginning on the impacts of plastic in the ocean, as experts are not sure what threats it poses, Professor Ian Boyd, chief scientific adviser for the Environment Department said.
Blue Planet II: How plastic is killing our sea creatures - In pictures
Plastic pollution, which is set to triple between 2015 and 2025 without intervention, has a physical presence in the oceans, and can accumulate on the coasts or in particular areas of the sea.
But the toxic effects when they break down and end up inside marine organisms are not clear, he said.
He added: "Even in absence of research, there is a precautionary principle to take here, which is we should minimise the amount of plastic, both macro-plastic and micro-plastic, going into the marine environment, in order to make sure that if there are toxic effects, those are being dealt with."

Blue Whales in the Bay of Bengal 🐋✨ One of those moments I’ll hold close to my heart for the rest of time. Watching these gentle giants appear from the depths around our small boat puts into perspective just how little we are. We share this planet with the most incredible creatures and for a species small in stature our impact is immeasurable. Protecting these animals and the environments they call home should be a priority for us all even if it’s in the smallest of ways #saynotoplastic#takethreeforthesea#bluewhale#whaletail#trincomalee#srilanka
