1. Domestic waste glass (known as cullet) is easy to recycle. The UK currently recycles around 50% of container glass (like bottles and jars) and whilst this figure has doubled over the last five years it still lags behind other countries i.e. both Switzerland and Finland recycle more than 90% of their glass.

    Glass is usually collected in 'bottle banks' at recycling centres or as part of our kerbside collection. However there is still more we can all do, such as remembering to recycle our clear jars (pasta sauce jars and jam jars) which are often forgotten.

    The UK business sector still has a lot of work to do to recycle glass – bars, restaurants and pubs currently throw away 600,000 tonnes of glass every year, with most of it ending up in landfill.

    Did you know? Recycling two bottles saves enough energy to boil enough water for five cups of tea!

  5. Over the years, Smart has cultivated a business design practice and we’ve worked with many businesses to help bring new innovation processes and business models to life. Design and design thinking are hot topics with most of our clients, but despite all of the recognized value, it’s still less common to see design championed at the upper levels of most companies. Over the past couple of years, we decided to approach the challenge of getting design ‘a seat at the table’ from another angle. Taking a cue from the Greeks, we have been helping to create a “Trojan Horse” of sorts with the budding business leaders of the future, MBA candidates.

    To this end, we have been working with the DISC Club at the Haas School of Business in Berkeley, CA to help cultivate design thinking skills in their MBA candidates. To read more, click here:
