No Plastic IS Fantastic – our pledge and actions to support the British Campaign to Reduce, Recycle & Reuse Plastic Waste.
In January we introduced a range of every day products by local businessNature & My – items which replace current plastic ones – hair brushes, toothbrushes, reusable drinking straws, coffee cups, water bottles, lunch boxes – all made from plastic free materials and are totally biodegradable. A plastic toothbrush once disposed stays on our earth for 200 years, a bamboo toothbrush breaks down in 7 days – completely disappears!
- In store we have started our change for the future by offering 20p off all takeaway hot drinks when customers bring their own drinks cups.
- All of our fresh baked bread, filled rolls, Homemade Cakes, Hot Pastries, Loose Fruit & Veg are all sold in paper bags.
- When our customers stay in to eat and drink we have china mugs and plates and steel cutlery – no waste is created at all.
- Our carrier bags aren’t offered in store, but when requested we provide only biodegradable ones.
