Plastic-free shop just the job

- By Steph Spyro

AN INTERIOR designer has given up her office job to start a zerowaste shop to show people how “small changes can make a big difference”.

Jordan Perata, 26, left her £40,000-a-year post to open Kilo, which sells locally made goods such as washing-up liquid, jam and pasta without any plastic packaging.

The north London-based entreprene­ur is backing the Daily Express Green Britain Needs You crusade calling for a total ban on bags made from plastic.

Jordan, from Milton Keynes, said: “Everywhere you look plastic bags and other plastic waste is just strewn around our streets and countrysid­e.

“Simply doubling the price of plastic bags from 5p to 10p will have zero effect on saving our planet.”
