You may have heard the term ‘zero-waste’ – but what does it mean?
Zero-waste is a fairly new approach to waste management which aims to reduce what we consume and reuse as much as possible, resulting in less waste going to recycling and less still to landfill.
Put simply, producing less rubbish means we reduce our footprint on the environment.
At the moment, the average household in the UK generates a whopping tonne of rubbish every year and the average person throws away their own body weight in rubbish every seven weeks. Here at FabFudge, we want to change that.
That’s why all of our packaging is 100% recyclable. Our plastic tubs – which keep your fudge tasting great – are made from biodegradable potato starch. It’s true. That means they break down completely in 3-6 months, unlike traditional plastic tubs which take… several hundred years!
What’s more, we’ve teamed up with zero-waste shops, like Zero Green in Bristol, and others across the country to sell our fudge.
At Zero Green, you bring your own containers, jars and bags, and buy as much (fudge!) or as little as you like. No unnecessary packaging = no waste.
This video from Zero Green explains a little more about who they are and what they do….
If, like us, you’re committed to reducing waste and respecting our planet, then give zero-waste a try. Even if it’s not possible to buy all your groceries this way, it’s a step in the right direction. And you won’t believe how much #FabFudge you can fit into a wheelbarrow…
