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!

Our efforts have attracted media coverage – BBC Coventry & Warwickshire have featured us on their breakfast show – live from our shop! And we have made a short film for BBC digital on line.
  • 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.
Next steps are to change to biodegradable straws and take away cutlery – but we won’t stop there, it’s a journey that we all need to go on.
The range by Nature & My is prominently featured in our gift shop area – and all support or contributions to our change journey are most welcome.
