Interesting news from the shop floor...

We are always trying to consider the environmental impact of our business and with a view to cutting down on plastic packaging we switched to paper pulp punnets, last year, to use in the fruit and veg boxes.  Some things arrive in the shop already in plastic bags and it is unlikely that we would be able to stop plastic use altogether, but we are happy to have these bags back if you can't reuse or recycle them yourself.  We use the services of  We are also in the process of sourcing larger, sturdier paper bags for use with the delivery side orders.

We are now offering the Ecoleaf Refill service in the shop.  We are of course very short of space in the shop so we have installed our large bulk containers down in the cellar but just bring your empty bottles in and the elves down there will magically refill them for you.  

We'll be offering refills for Ecoleaf Washing up Liquid, Ecoleaf Laundry Liquid and Ecoleaf Fabric conditioner.  And of course the refills offer great reductions on buying the products off the shelf.
