As part of this scheme, ASOS will be launching a clothing recycling collection scheme for customers in the UK and Germany, joining brands such as H&M and M&S, which already run garment collection programmes. High street brands such as H&M , Zara and M&S have joined more than 100 other fashion names in agreeing to the 2020 Circular Fashion System Commitment, a promise to make their processes more sustainable in the next two years. It just got a lot easier to cut down on your fashion waste.
Wagamama has announced that it will be ending its use of plastic straws. The chain, which serves Asian food inspired by the flavours of Japan, has stopped automatically providing plastic straws to customers across its 128 UK restaurants, and is only handing them out on request or with juices that need stirring. It will stop providing them altogether from Earth Day on April 22 and instead will be offering a biodegradable paper alternative.
Your food shop may never be the same again. The phase-out of single-use plastics in supermarkets has begun. Now that Iceland have pledged to be the first retailer in the world to make their own-brand products plastic-free by 2023, people have begun asking about their competitors too. So it seems inevitable that others will soon do the same. HuffPost UK asked Britain’s other major supermarkets what they were doing to address Britain’s plastic problem.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
