Veg Box Newsletter w/c 19.3.18

Hello Folks,

Today your small and medium delivery will be arriving in a brand new reusable, foldable Locavore veg box! These strong cardboard boxes are built to last and will mean we don’t have to use those awful plastic bags any more – yay!

In saying that, anything perishable such as salads or greens will still come in a small plastic bag. We haven’t come up with a solution to replace these yet as brown paper bags just don’t cut it in terms of freshness. If you have any ideas on this, please get in touch! Don’t forget these (clean) bags can be returned to us for reuse.

In other packaging news: we’re purchasing cool bags to keep your milk as cool as possible right up until the very second it arrives on your doorstep and, large and extra large deliveries will be getting foldable plastic crates in the next week or so.

Please don’t forget to put your boxes out for collection every week so that we can reuse them, keeping them in the circular system for as long as possible. Every little helps… oops did we just quote Tesco? How ironic!
