1-5pm, Sunday 10th February 2019, Hungerford Hub (library), RG17 0JG
Scoop – Zero Waste will be offering over 20 different dried products including Jeeves and Jericho English breakfast tea, fusilli pasta, walnuts, dried apricots and rice.
Thatcham Refillable will be offering SESI detergent refills. Their aim is to provide sustainable household products, made in the U.K and sourced as locally as possible. Their containers go back to the factory to be refilled and sent back to them again once they’re empty.
You’ll need to bring along your own bags, bottles and containers, so start stocking up now.
Other local produce will be on sale, as well as the opportunity to sign up to an organic, local vegetable scheme from Harroway Organic Gardens, Whitchurch, Hants, near Watership Down – chemical free farming in harmony with nature and wildlife.
To compliment the plastic free theme there will also be a drop-in Eco-brick making workshop.
Eco-bricks are plastic bottles stuffed so full of non-recyclable plastic that they are heavy enough to be used as a brick! Please bring a clean and dry bottle (500ml is ideal to start – the smaller the better) and any kind of clean and dry plastic (e.g. crisp packets, wraps from a variety of goods, plastic trays, etc.), a ‘pushing stick’ (for a small bottle, a wooden spoon with a long handle will be fine) and a pair of scissors.
You can download a flier about the event here and our aspirations for a Hungerford Community Shop here. If you are able to deliver leaflets to a few roads in Hungerford please let us know asap, as we’re planning to post a leaflet through 2,500 homes in Hungerford and need some help to ensure word gets out. We can only make this a regular event if the first one is a success, so please come along to support it.
Please also share the event on Facebook, forward this email and tell your family and friends. Together we can reduce our waste and make a difference in Hungerford.
