ISSUE 1374

It’s time for a rubbish revolution

In this week’s magazine:

  • How our future food shop will be transformed by ditching excess single-use packaging. We also look at the social enterprise that combats e-waste by turning Britain into a restoration nation. And take a ride on the public transport powered by poo in Bristol.
  • As kids return to school we sum up our Holiday Hunger campaign and ask you to sign a petition to end one of the leading contributors to the scandal.
  • Sick of talking about Brexit? There’s a way of looking at it that doesn’t involve shouting and arguing says historian Mary Beard
  • Our Letter To My Younger Self is with writer and broadcaster Lemn Sissay who grew up in care, all the while his birth mother was trying to trace him. He shares his incredible story of survival.

Plus: Are asteroids really going to destroy the Earth? Our Changemaker Katie Alcott is liberating the world with water and Peter, a vendor from a street paper in Bratislava tells us the best things about the Slovakian capital.

This week’s My Pitch vendor is Stephen in Middlesbrough who tells us his hopes to have his own plumbing business in the future.
