With Easter on the horizon, have you ever thought about the amount of packaging that comes with the 80 millions eggs that are sold in the UK each year. One way to reduce this amount is to make your own Easter egg.

Greenpeace recently presented a petition to Parliament in New Zealand calling on the government to ban the use of single-use plastic bags.
