Eco-essentials 1: the backpack

First in an occasional series of basic eco-gear is a humble daypack. And in it I’d put one of those insulated coffee cups, a lightweight plastic plate, knife and fork, a washed-out takeway container, one or two of those green shopping bags (with a couple of plastic supermarket veggie bags inside) and a bottle of drinking water. And whatever else you carry around in a daypack, of course.

That way you can eliminate that daily mountain of plastic packaging from takeaway containers, buying drinks on the run (bottled water is an eco-crime) and unplanned stops at the shops.
