Mrs. Green writes:

“So here’s the scoop.

Back in June 2010, I was contacted by Candida Brady; film producer with Blenheim Films. She told me she was making a documentary about waste and sustainability (Called “Trashed“) and wanted to spend time with someone who had achieved zero waste at home. She explained they were talking to experts from around the world, including one of my all time heroes Prof Paul Connett, and that she would like me to show them how to reduce waste at home.

Oh, and she just happened to drop into the conversation that she would like me to show Jeremy Irons how to reduce his waste too.

Now I only have eyes for my beloved Mr Green, but oh yes, I don’t mind admitting to allowing quarter of my good eye to flow from head to toe over Jeremy’s fine frame.

Fast forward to May last year and we headed off to Ross to do a bit of naked shopping together – Me, Jez and a film crew – yay!

We spent a few hours with me talking a load of old rubbish and showing our favourite A-lister how easy it was to shop with reduced packaging, especially when you have brilliant stores like Field Fayre on hand to help you. In there all fruit and vegetables are sold loose. Not only does this reduce packaging but it reduces food waste too because you can buy exactly the amount you want. In addition you can refill cleaning products from Ecover such as washing up liquid, fabric softener and detergent. Sandwiches and cakes are sold with fully compostable packaging and there isn’t a plastic carrier bag to be seen. In fact when we first started shopping there, David was giving away reusable cotton bags to all his customers. It couldn’t be simpler to do your bit for the environment, could it…”
