Here at the market we have always had a policy of only using locally produced food, flowers, vegetables and all the other high quality products we have on offer. We also re-use paper shopping bags and lots of our customers bring their own re-usable shopping bags or baskets.
Some of our customers bring their own tins to put their cakes or slices directly into. And we swapped to paper bags for our loose produce months ago.
Today was #sickofplastic day and we provided our customers with a place to put any packaging from the veggies into, so that we can reuse it or dispose of it as applicable.
We always encourage our customers to bring back market jam jars and today one man brought a whole basket full!
I have a feeling that all this “on-trend” reduce, recycle, re-use business is just common sense and here at the market we have been never been “off-trend!”
