Leafware Compostable Cutlery
One of the biggest injustices to plague the Earth in this day and time is the widespread use of single-use plastic. Plastic cutlery is almost always used once and thrown away to forever exist in the environment before it breaks into micro-plastics.
You can reduce or eliminate this waste by using Leafware compostable forks, spoons, knives and tasters which break down in a way that’s responsible.
Leafware’s Compostable Cutlery is available on www.leafware.com
BEING E-CO FRIENDLY STARTS HERE
The iameco Laptop
Did you know that the electronics industry produces tonnes of waste every year? One of the most sustainable changes we can make towards leaving behind a better planet is being mindful of our electronics and understanding their sources. That’s where the iameco laptop comes in. Focusing on creating the first truly environmentally-friendly laptop, the company delved into what it was made from and how it was made to reduce energy consumption, encourage re-use and eliminate waste.
The goals in developing the laptop were to achieve a decrease of at least 30% in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, at least 70% of overall re-use and recycling of waste and a reduction of at least 75% of fresh water utilisation.
