These come from trees

A single "These Come From Trees" sticker can save around a tree's worth of paper, every year. This began (and I suppose still is) an experiment in environmentalism and viral marketing.

To try to reduce the amount of paper towels used in bathrooms Pete Kazanjy designed a simple sticker - and it worked.

One of Premier Waste's customers wanted advice on how to reduce the amount of food that it was sending to landfill, the food was fit for consumption so we put them in touch with FareShare.

At the start of 2008 when I was investigating way to reduce my waste, one of the things I started doing was using less "stuff" to shave with.

A couple of weeks went by and I had managed to reduce my waste weight substantially and I forgot about the shaving angle. Then last week when I was getting my hair cut I looked up at a display of shaving brushes which got me thinking about the changes I had made to my shaving regime and how much my changes had reduced my waste.

Wow, look at this great packaging for strawberries.


It is made almost entirely out of cardboard apart from the cellophane window in the outer sleeve. The dish container is made out of the same cardboard as egg boxes; perfect for putting in the compost bin or in the hamster's cage (and then in the compost bin).
The outer sleeve can be recycled using established cardboard recycling methods.
