We have a few in store initiatives that either recycle or reuse product packaging. These are stationed towards the back of the store in the household and beauty section, opposite the toilet.
We are now a public collection point for four Terracycle recycling schemes. We collects the items and send back to Terracycle (for free) where they get recycled. We get points for each item that have a monetary value and are donated to our chosen charity (the Good Food Fund). More info on exactly what can be collected can be found by clicking the link.
Ellacycle – any brand of baby food pouches
Crisp Packets – any brand of crisp packet
Oral Care – any brand of toothpaste tubes, tooth brushes, electronic toothbrush heads etc
Biscuits & Snack Wrapping – any brand of biscuits and snack plastic wrapping
Still Life – we collect plastic type two only for Still Life who melt it down and make it in to beautiful repurposed things. Please double check the type of plastic (there will be a number 2 in a triangle somewhere) before bringing in to us – we have had a lot of people dumping bags of plastic that can’t be used by Still Life, meaning more work for them and mess in our shop!
Ed’s Bees – please return your clean jars to our collection box and Ed will reuse them.
Crates, Boxes and Pallets – we have a constant supply of boxes and crates which we regularly sit out on the floor for customers to take for free. Help yourself if you see them. Contact us for pallets!
