As a group of people sat eating lunch, frustrated at the amount of useless plastic that wrapped their food and everything they consumed, a voice piped up,

‘I filled up my shampoo at a shop down the road the other day.’

A meal deal sandwich hit the desk, someone choked on their bottle of water, and all fell silent. ‘What did you say?!’ asked one onlooker, suspiciously.

‘Yeh, there’s loads of these shops where you can buy stuff without the packaging, you just bring your own containers and fill them up.’

The enlightening chat continued as eyes grew wide with excitement, and useless was born, a useful zero-waste guide to help you ditch those disposables and use less plastic.
