  • There’s been a lot in the news over the last few months about the problems of waste plastic. We’ve reached the point where the UN has stepped in to help tackle the issue of plastic clogging up our oceans, and governments everywhere are seeking ways to reduce our reliance on plastic and better handle the plastic available for recycling. Alas, the tales of gloom still outnumber the positive – but th...

  • It was around the middle of last year that the Chinese government announced a forthcoming ban on the import of “yang laji”, or “foreign garbage”. Until that point, they had been the greatest recipients of recyclable waste in the world, taking a massive 2.7 million tonnes of plastic from the UK alone in the period between 2012 and September 2017, in addition to 55% of all of our paper waste. For th...

  • Newcastle University Shining Star    This article has been written & researched by Ruby, these are her words and views. UK adults use nearly 7.7 billion single-use plastic water bottles each year – that’s around 150 per person – and to me, the numbers don’t need to be so high. Studying physical geography at Newcastle University I’ve been lectured and seen hands-on, the devastating effects of plast...

  • How our rubbish is destroying the oceans. I don’t generally like to focus on the negatives in life; our world is a wonderful place, and us Brits are lucky enough to live in one of the most wonderful places on it. The thing is, every so often I find myself reading something that makes me really depressed, and today is one of those days. Did you know that it’s entirely legal to dump waste in the oce...

  • How Safe is Your Water Cooler? It’s almost a given, these days, that if you work for a company of a reasonable size – say, ten employees, or more – you will benefit from the provision of a water cooler. It’s quick, it’s easy, it tastes better than tap water, and it’s better for you than fizzy drinks. That’s the assumption anyway. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that. While well-made, well-mai...

  • Back in the days when a referendum seemed unlikely, and the prospect of the UK voting to leave the EU unlikelier still, the tabloids leapt with rabid fervour upon every story with the smallest ability to paint the organisation in a preposterous light. As often happens in such cases, that light bounced back, leaving the tabloids to bask in the reflected stupidity. It all began with a test case inve...

Hey Cool It!

  • Feeeeelin’ hot, hot, hot! It’s such a British thing; we spend half the year wishing for summer, then when it gets here we complain that it’s just too, tooooo hot. In all fairness though, we’re not really equipped to deal with it: our homes, shops and offices generally lack the Arctic air-conditioning that most consistently warmer countries boast; our buildings are constructed for warmth.
