Oat, so good

You may be used to inspecting the nutritional labels on food, but now oat milk brand, Oatly, has gone one step further by introducing labels with a number that defines a product’s climate impact. Expressed in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e), you’ll now be informed of the environmental footprint of their products – all the way from field to store. And if you weren’t already convinced, calculations show that by swapping 1 litre of whole British cow’s milk for 1 litre of oat milk, you’ll save 1.16kg of CO2e – which is the equivalent to the greenhouse gas produced by driving 10km in an average petrol car. Oatly hope that by becoming the first brand to introduce these labels on a global scale, it will encourage us all to make more informed choices about our food and drink.

A cup of positivity

It’s a sad reality that the UK throws away 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups every year, with less than one per cent of those being recycled. However, environmental charity, Hubbub (, with the help of Starbucks, has launched a new scheme which seeks to change that. The Cup Fund is the largest grant scheme to support ambitious projects that aim to boost paper cup recycling in the UK. In other words, grant funding between £50,000 to £100,000 will be put towards each successful project, as part of an effort to introduce new recycling facilities, create new partnerships and deliver high quality behaviour change communications in at least 10 cities.
