Food Waste and Anaerobic Digestion

For this week’s article, we thought we’d focus on one of the great technical feats of our time. It’s a hugely important area of sustainable innovation - a real frontier in the fight against climate change - but, confoundingly, it hasn’t always received the press attention it deserves. The technology...

COP26 and the IPCC Report

On the face of it, the central claim of the recent IPCC Report - that human activity is having a rapid and irreversible effect on our climate - appears fairly banal. In any sane society, ascribing banality to the IPCC’s semi-apocalyptic warnings would appear a contradiction in terms. In our...

5 Influencers You Need To Be Following On Instagram

Our round-up of 5 influencers you should be following now...

The Climate Crisis and Politics

‘The climate crisis requires immediate action’. This isn’t the first time you’ve heard somebody express that sentiment: in fact, so common are professions of this kind, you’ve probably heard something pretty similar in the last 24 hours. The fact that we’re subjected to this climate-related echolalia is proof enough that...

Is Recycling Even Worth It?

Tackling the issue of plastic waste can sometimes seem like a losing battle. When we see campaigns like the one recently published by Greenpeace - citing the heaps of plastic we continue to 'dump...on the rest of the world' - or when we discover that a portion of our recycling...

People, Private Companies and our Collective Responsibility

We have a collective tendency to judge our peers based on their motivations as much as their actions. If a politician passes a widely popular bill, for example, you’ll often hear commentators questioning his motives: was this a genuine attempt to improve society, or a pragmatic move to secure public...

Reusing Plastic Bottles

‘Reduce, reuse, recycle’. Though we’ve all heard this phrase, we tend to focus on its foremost and final instructions, and to ignore the suggestion which is (perhaps not coincidentally) at its core. ‘Reusing’ is among the most useful things one can do for the environment; nothing guarantees that a waste...

Supermarket Plastics

From a very young age, we all have an inherent understanding of the differences between supermarkets: we know which are cheaper, which sell higher quality products, etc. Unfortunately, though, one characteristic of our supermarkets is less well-publicized: their relative attitudes to plastic waste. In this blog, we’ll outline the plastic-related...

Project Greenify

For this week’s blog post, we have a bit of a cheat: an article of ours which was originally posted on Project Greenify - a great blog page focusing on sustainability - and which we’re now sharing here, too, but with an introduction from Sylvia Van Can (owner of Greenify)....

Using Our Products: Starter Pack

We’re not big on corporate doublespeak at Green n White, but ‘try before you buy’ seems an (annoyingly) pertinent phrase to describe the logic behind the launch deal we’re offering. New members will get their first month of membership free of charge, and will be able to pre-order our Starter...

10 Apps to improve your Sustainable Lifestyle

Human ingenuity has a lot to answer for. Cars, aeroplanes, hydraulic drills, offshore oil rigs, coal-fired power stations: every one of these polluting contraptions began as nothing more than a glint in an eye, a half-formed idea flitting across a mind.  There’s no doubt that each of these marvels of...

World Refill Day

Linguistically redundant, certainly: but practically speaking, the importance of reusing our materials can’t be overstated. To put it bluntly, ‘recycling’ alone is woefully insufficient as a solution to the world’s environmental issues.

GB Spring Clean

We’ve certainly learned the value of our outdoor spaces. What we are still failing to grasp, however, is the importance of treating the land with the respect it deserves.

Coral Reefs: The Lungs of the Sea

Much like the rainforest floor, corals play host to such a wildly diverse selection of animal life that scientists continue to discover new reef-dwelling species at an incredible rate.

GnW: Our Methods

There’s a sad irony in the fact that the same products we use to clean our bodies and households are doing so much to dirty the environment

We Are Green n White

At Green n White, we don’t much like the term ‘consumer’. Though we all ‘consume’ products, we spend far more of our time selecting them: browsing shelves, reading labels, weighing prices against pay-checks.
