This month has been one of reflection. Not least because it’s my 10th anniversary of taking St Edmundsbury’s Zero Waste Week challenge.
At risk of this column turning into Cannard’s Plastic Watch, the lightweight wonder material of modern times has yet again, this month, been at the forefront of national and local action. The prediction that 2018 would be the year of promises continues to ring true.
What a start to 2018! Talk about fireworks.

Boo! If you’ve been on social media lately, amid the plentiful seasonal adverts for pumpkins and cheap Hallowe’en costumes, you may have spotted some of the stark statistics that highlight how much waste is created at this time of year.
