Plastic-free shop just the job
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.”
