For the first two years that the British Embassy rolled out recycling in Moscow they separated over 22 tonnes of waste and sent it to be recycled, amounting to 15% of their total waste. From this waste, they reduced their carbon footprint by 28 tonnes CO2 equivalent and saved over £15,000. This could be replicated by small businesses across Moscow.

About Matthew Webb

Documentary photographer Matthew Webb has examined a diverse range of subject matter, from globalization, Soviet space exploration, and the confrontation between the urban and the rural, to personal narratives of individual families or communities. Working predominantly in black-and- white—to foreground the human experience rather than the play of color and light—he has captured images in the United Kingdom, Yemen, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, and China. Primarily fascinated by the tension between modernization and tradition, Webb searches for the common experiences between disparate places.
