Creating the Plastic Free Home Industry Challenge
As part of its commitment to creating environmentally friendly homes, Accord Housing has won European Funding (Interreg NWE) for a trial to build 12 plastic-free houses.
The European project, CHARM (Circular Housing Asset Renovation & Management), is a partnership with academic and social housing organisations in UK, Belgium, France and the Netherlands: thus providing contacts and opening up potential business opportunities in Europe for our suppliers.
One major issue for us in meeting our objective is the supply of a (virtually) plastic-free electrical insulator for the wiring in the new-build homes. We are therefore launching an industry challenge to find suitable new innovative solutions, product(s) and supplier(s) using more natural materials or less plastic.
