Hats in the air to Waitrose starting a ‘bring your own containers’ trial to Oxford. Plastic packaging for a range of products like pasta, cereals, rice, coffee, wine and frozen fruit will be removed and replaced with a refill your own station. About bloody time one of the big supermarkets did this. When they roll it out across all stores (fingers crossed) maybe they’ll use Smile Plastics in their design..
Smile Plastics is a material, design and manufacturing house making desirable hand crafted panels from waste material. Their vision is to change people’s perceptions around waste via innovation – to use art and technology to unlock the hidden potential in recycling and open peoples eyes to the unexpected beauty of scrap. In doing so they hope to inspire more people about sustainability and recycling.
