Unlike a lot of the community businesses that Plunkett supports, this group didn’t save an asset. Instead they saw a need in the community and created a thriving business that offers a genuine shopping alternative to the local people.
To date, they’ve saved almost 24,000 single-use plastic containers and more than 548kg of plastic going to landfill. As well as supporting the local community to access ‘greener’ purchasing, they also work with local schools and businesses to help them reduce their plastic use and their suggestion board invites community engagement, encouraging customers to help drive the future of the business.
It was thanks to all of these efforts, and much more, that lead Plunkett Trustees, Chris Coe and Alex Begg to choose them as the overall winner.
