Cut Down Your Plastic Use Now!

27 November 2018

With Christmas comes extra shopping and packaging. But traders in Crediton are helping everyone to cut down on plastic packaging. 

Stevie B's the bakers are now selling a number of items loose. Cereals, cake ingredients including dried fruit, cleaning products including washing powder are just a few. The full list is displayed in the window. They also offer discounts for bulk buys and customers can take along their own containers to be filled.

Four Seasons fruit and vegetables sell almost all produce loose, much of it locally or regionally produced, so you can buy just what you need, and take it home in a paper bag;

The Pet Shop is putting bird food into empty plastic milk containers;

Cox the butcher will put meat purchases into your own container.

Don't forget a number of local shops will refill your water bottles for free.
