Friday night is takeaway night at the Moore's and sometimes the only thing that hits the spot is a kebab. Yes, yes, if I knew the truth then I wouldn't go within 3 feet of a doner but that's another story.
You'd have to go a long way to describe me as an eco warrior but when I look at the greasy polystyrene box destined for the bin I always feel a bit guilty. I mean, you can't recycle it, you can't re-use it to store food, so off it goes to landfill, right? Not so fast!

If you're not partial to a kebab then politely ask your friendly kebab shop owner if you can have an empty box, they're usually more than happy to give you one or alternatively you can use polystyrene party plates.
Use any off cuts from the polystyrene box to make smaller prints for gift tags or create your own logo and use them to sign off your cards and letters.
