U.K. based plastic free refuseniks. Very useful blogs, passionate people and great resources.

In the UK, living plastic free is a very ad hoc kind of process. While other countries may have bulk buy chain stores where you buy your basic staples loose, in the UK this is not the case. Instead we have to scurry around sourcing some plastic free rice from Khadims and tracking down  a local bakers, some of us might be lucky enough to still have a market and maybe a washing up liquid refill site but it is by no means guaranteed. Generally speaking, recommendations for a plastic free lifestyle in the U.K. tend to be site specific. While I might have sourced olive oil refills in Todmorden that’s no use to folks in Lincoln.
So the more people prepared to write about and share their experiences of living #plasticfree in their own town the better. The plastic free U.K. directory was created to promote this information.
It’s easy to submit a piece. Write about your plastic free finds in a post and I will publish your entry in the directory, credited (of course), with whatever links you choose to share.
If you blog, you can  write an  introduction to your website. Job done.

The Plastic-free U.K. Directory

Showcasies U.K. based  business, people and organisations that are plastic aware, in their own words….
Sadly I don’t have time to cover all the great people and businesses out there… and I always feel a little shy about write ups. Suppose I miss the point. So I ask people to contribute their own posts. The only provisos are that you have to be U.K. based and of course it has to have a rubbish element. Not necessarily anti-plastic but certainly plastic problem aware.
