Easter is nearly upon us! Its no surprise it’s one of the UK ‘s most popular time’s to purchase chocolate – 10% of our annual chocolate spending is done at Easter.

With all those eggs comes a lot of packaging too. Last year it was calculated by Wrap a waste advisory organisation that around 3,000 tonnes of packaging waste is created from Easter Eggs – with a significant amount of this waste resulting in plastic waste which ends up in a landfill.

Easter Egg Facts:

80 million Easter eggs are sold every year in the UK and the average child will consume 8 of them.

Approximately 80 million chocolate eggs are sold in the UK at Easter which generates around 4,370 tonnes of card and 160 tonnes of foil waste. Most of the plastic packaging used is not recyclable yet, which means it will end up in landfills.

So, who is doing their bit to combat the packaging?

Most brands such as Cadburys, M&S Sainsbury’s have taken steps to use recyclable plastic and eco-friendly packing so if you are buying an egg the read all the packing carefully.

Modern technology and enhancements have assisted create practical and active games. These kind of entertainment games were not really sensible when the concept was first of all being used. Just like other forms of know-how, video games way too have had to grow by way of many ages. This itself is testimony on the fast continuing development of video games.
