The aim was to create a solution that is credible, high performing and yet affordable. Earthpouch is made from a special type of paper which incorporates a 100% plastic free heat-sealable coating. This material is then formed using a state of the art pouch manufacturing process to produce the Stand Up Pouches providing food security for dry and moist food products. The Troofoods designs were printed by local partner TCL Packaging using plates from YRG Eclipse.
In direct response to the 5p bottle tax and the threat of an imposed 25p ‘latte levy’ on coffee cups, a new project will begin later this year in Cornwall to establish the viability of a radical new ‘Beverage Bin’. The Beverage Bin will accept all types of single-use drinks containers, including paper and plastic cups, cans, cartons, plastic bottles and even lids and straws, thereby eliminating consumer confusion, capturing more waste and boosting recycling rates.
The government’s announcement that it intends to explore with supermarkets the introduction of plastic free aisles where food is sold loose as part of its 25 year environmental plan demands careful consideration. If plastics packaging is removed from stores we are in real danger of losing the many benefits it provides. The general public is rightly concerned about how we manage packaging at ‘end-of-life’.
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".
