Plastic Coated Fruit & Veg – Save us!

Have you seen how much fruit and vegetable produce is wrapped and packed in plastic? We at FSN prefer to buy fresh local organic produce from farmers' markets, but when we go to our local specialist Green Grocers shops, many take our choice away by wrapping preselected quantities in metres of plastic! Perhaps it’s a less-than-clever way to force us to buy more than we would otherwise select, but we object! We don’t want to take home and have to dispose of unwanted foam trays and cling wrap, we just want to buy what we need. We notice that New…

Now Christmas is done, what on earth should you do with the tree?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: deciding what to do with your Christmas tree. If you bought a plastic tree, you might have already made the commitment to store and reuse it next year. However, if you were just looking at the greenhouse gas credentials of Christmas tree options, a full life cycle analysis indicates you’ll need to reuse that plastic tree at least 20 times to break even.
