My name is Nicci and I am just the average UK single mother living on £150 a week (after necessary bills). This New Year I want to lose 2 stone (again); I want to continue to bring up my six and three year old as conscientious individuals that care about Global warming and I want to save money, so we can travel more. It is my belief (at the start of the year) that the resolution to…

‘NOT bring any plastic into my home’

… should tick all three boxes. At the end of the year I will be a svelte size 12; my children will be able to hold their heads high at an Extinction Rebellion demonstration and I will be a proud member of #vanlife.

Plastic is reported as being in the belly of almost every being on the planet, but how easy have businesses and governments, during my lifetime, made going ‘plastic free’ today?
