Not limited to cafes, restaurants and eateries, but any business trying to make a difference, either supplying a product or making changes to support sustainable solutions.
SO Shire businesses making a difference:
Join a growing local community in the share of bulk buying healthy, organic whole foods and household items - we run several group buys for fresh foods, pantry and household staples monthly
The home of beautiful food.
For years we have been striving to change our practices to be as sustainable as possible, reducing waste generated by single use packaging, and plastic pollution where ever possible. We are also trying to change the habits of our suppliers, or whenever possible choose suppliers who are also trying to minimise their footprint.
