Sian Sutherland on all things plastic
- Sian Sutherland - A Plastic Planet
- Adam Beveridge - Hollabox
After two weeks of superb specials from the Speciality Show, FoodTalk returned to its trusted and tested format in our comfy studio. Sue Nelson and Guy Routledge had been getting withdrawal symptoms, so it was good to be back.
To get us back into the swing of things, we had a topic which certainly got the debate flowing. Staggeringly, by 2050, the weight of plastic in the oceans will outweigh that of fish. Sian Sutherland is determined to turn the tide – she founded the ‘A Plastic Planet’ movement. Their goal? They want supermarkets to offer a plastic-free aisle.
From one sustainability project to another, we attended Disco Soup last week and what an event it was. Steve Griffiths and James Sloan went over to Mercato Metropolitano to find what the craic was; saving wasted vegs, feeding mouths, listening to Ministry of Sound tunes – lovely stuff.
We had enough to shout about for an hour but we simply had to holla at Adam Beveridge. He’s created a fantastic Snapchat-story style app called Hollabox which is whittling down the best places to eat, drink, chill and generally just enjoy existence in London.
