Tracey and Richard were inspired to change their lifestyle after watching the series Blue Planet and seeing the long-term environmental harm caused by our addiction to plastic packaging. Hear how they dug out their string bags, and glass milk bottles and went around local shops talking to traders about the necessity for customes to be allowed to use their own containers.
