They say you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Having spent the last eight years in London and Bangkok coming back to spend time with our families in Yorkshire has made me realise just how much I’ve missed spending time in the countryside.
The ocean takes up over half of the world’s surface, and over half of all life on earth exists under the sea. Reducing plastic waste is (obviously) something that we are massively passionate about here at Kalleco, and this is one of the things that we think is really important for maintaining all of this marine life in its current state.
It’s so incredible to see how ‘Green’ living is becoming more mainstream. Derided as a fringe movement in previous decades, people are coming round to understanding the importance of looking after our planet. The challenges of climate change and plastic pollution are two of the main reasons for that, and in public discourse it now seems to me that it is more of a fringe view to think that these two issues are not important.
The concept of consumerism is becoming more and more commonly used in a derogatory sense. As the environment creaks under the ever increasing weight of plastic and industrial waste, increasing numbers of people are turning on what used to be considered one of the main motors of the world.
