But the one source of plastic that has to be the most ridiculous is bottled water. And this is especially true in the UK where we have clean and drinkable tap water. So why is it still lining every shop fridge and supermarket aisle in the country?
This episode interviewee is part of a volunteer organisation Water for London. They are starting with the biggest city in the UK to try and tackle this problem by getting more water fountains installed across the city. They are doing this by focussing on the places where you get large numbers of people a lot of the time: train and underground stations.
My conversation with Justine starts with bottled water but as she is a sustainability blogger herself, we then move on to talk about other waste issues, palm oil and even minimalism.
This is a bit of a longer episode than usual but I hope its worth staying till the end.
