Borough Market takes the lead on reducing plastic use
August 23, 2017
As a busy new agency, we often find ourselves out and about between meetings and events, and we've been increasingly dismayed at the ubiquity of single use plastic bottles, cups and straws across the UK's cafes, bars and restaurants. So we were delighted to see Borough Market recently committing to phase out all single use plastic bottle sales: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/aug/23/borough-market-london-phase-out-plastic-bottle-sales-with-free-fountains
There is plenty of innovation in this area (see for example http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2017/04/12/edible-water-bottle-could-put-end-plastic-packaging/) but until more sustainable technologies like these become the norm, and while the consumer demand for plastic receptacles endures, we will be relying on the likes of Borough Market to take a stand at the consumer supply side. Great work!
