The Conscious Scoop: Ben & Jerry’s goes Plastic-Lite and Loop Helps Big Brands Be Refillable

Another ice-cream brand has joined us in the green movement and we’ve discovered our clothes are contributing to the plastic problem. Check out the hottest sustainability news of the past week.


1. “Our house is on fire. I am here to say, our house is on fire.”

Greta Thunberg, 16, urges leaders to act on climate change. Speaking to leaders at Davos, Greta is making a plea, stating that climate change is threatening our civilisation and it’s time something is done – fast – “no matter how uncomfortable and unprofitable that may be.” 16 years old and making big waves, Greta reminds us of how pressing it is for leaders to take notice and start doing.

“I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is.”


2. Ben & Jerry’s goes plastic-lite!

Your delicious midnight Netflix snack is now going plastic-lite! Ben & Jerry’s just announced their efforts to reduce their use of plastics. By April 2019, expect their stores to only offer wooden spoons and that straws are only available when asked. From their vegan option launch to this, we love it when big brands are going green-er!

Ben & Jerry’s just got that much cooler.


3. Loop helps you close the loop with big brands.

Davos is buzzing with urgency and innovation. Loop made their launch at the World Economic Forum and are piloting a new system with high-quality packaging that allows consumers to return and refill their favourite products for big brands. It’s the rebirth of refillable and reusables.

The ownership of packaging has shifted – producers it’s your turn.


4. Android users, Samsung is getting rid of plastic packaging!

Samsung is jumping on the bandwagon and have pledged to reduce the amount of plastic waste from their products. As the largest smartphone maker in the world, their pledge is going to help reduce so much waste from their packaging. Expect your Samsung phones, tablets and wearables to be packaged in bio-based or recycled plastics instead and also expect matte exteriors instead of glossy ones to reduce the plastic protection films used.

Hurrah, Andriod for the win?


5. Milk might not be the best for you.

In Canada’s latest food guide, which provides Canadians with nutritional advice for optimal health, they have kinda done away with dairy. This guide comes aptly during a time where many Canadians are cutting their consumption on meat and dairy for the environment, health or ethical reasons.

Could we really do away with milk?
