Devon Live has created a list of 50 Devon and Cornwall businesses that are going further for the planet. There are some really interesting ideas and inspiring stories including kayaks made from marine plastic collected from Cornwall's beaches, a carbon-negative brewery and completely plastic-free coffee capsules. Look out for our cameo towards the bottom!

Although all these businesses are Devon and Cornwall-based, many serve the whole of the UK and even Europe so it's well-worth seeing whether you can lend them your support.

It's also great to see this article as part of Reach Media's #Do1Thing campaign, across their nationwide network of newspapers and websites. As part of their campaign you can find 50 small ways you can reduce your impact on the planet.
