Round-up

Waste not, want lots

Start-up brand Spare Snacks are trying to change the nation’s view of wonky veg. They take unloved fruit and vegetables, and turn them into delicious, vegan, gluten-free and healthy snacks that are great for people, producers and the planet. Funnily enough, throughout all their crisp ranges Spare Snacks only use produce that is going spare – be it wonky, misshapen or surplus produce, to support farmers and make the best and freshest products. Spare Snacks want to spread the word that oddly-shaped, discoloured or blemished produce has real value. From £1.25, sparesnacks.com

Dear Earth, with love

Quirky card shop, Scribbler, has pledged to become even more environmentally friendly, with their Go Greener campaign. hey’re kicking of by launching new biodegradable pocket packaging. Currently, all Scribbler branded cards sold in stores come in fully recyclable cellophane bags. However, after finding out that only 11 per cent of plastic in the UK makes it into the recycling bin, they decided to up their game. heir Valentine’s Day range was the first to come in 100 per cent biodegradable bags – made from PLA (polylactic acid), derived from renewable plant sources such as potato or beet starch. The move away from traditional petroleum-based plastics helps to preserve the planet’s natural resources. The bags can be dropped into general waste or food and garden waste bins, where after reaching landfill, under the right conditions, they will be broken back down into CO2, biomass and water. Before the release of the bags, Scribbler founder, John Procter, said: “We’re incredibly excited about our move to Go Greener, we’ve always worked with a green mission in mind but this new step is a big, important move which we hope will inspire a change in the industry.” scribbler.com
