Trades call for reduction in product packaging

Trades call for reduction in product packaging

Last week’s #TradesTalk discussion on Twitter was one of the most popular of the year, and it looked at the issue of waste and recycling for the trades.

If you’d like to talk to other trades, simply search the #TradesTalk hashtag on Twitter and join in the conversation every Tuesday evening from 8-9pm.

Here is our round-up of the best bits from the most recent chat.

The first question looked at how the trades deal with the weekly rubbish.

Then the conversation moved on to what is the most problematic in terms of excess packaging and waste.


The third question concerned regulation, and how aware the trades are of what applies to them.

Then the #TradesTalk community talked about using recycled materials.

The fifth question looked at whether a manufacturer could gain more customers with greener products. Most people said yes… with a few exceptions.
