Beyond Plastic Free July
Well done everyone who embraced Plastic Free July, even if you did one small thing to contribute to the environment by not accepting plastic packaging, great work indeed. During July in our store at Nuts About Health, we observed more customers using reusable paper bags over plastic bags and saw many customers bringing in their own containers and bags and to their benefit being rewarded with a discount. Conversations in store among customers were about just “make the effort to just do it.” Getting the bags out of the car, remembering to bring in the empty containers, reusing paper bags and elsewhere taking the bamboo or glass reusable coffee cup to the café to purchase a takeaway coffee and receive a discount. During July we added a few more items to our store just to make it easier for you to continue your plastic free lifestyle. Everyone has loved the stainless steel pegs, the produce bags and the metal straws. I often suggest to our customers to come into Nuts About Health before entering the supermarket. You would be amazed at the price difference buying our products without having to pay for the plastic packaging. Spices, herbs, flours, dried fruit, nuts, oil, apple cider vinegar and cleaning products are just a few things you will not need to pay for packaging. And best of all you can buy as little or as much as you like and over 3kg we will give you a further discount. We also have reusable bags and a jar library to choose from. See you all before you go to the supermarket!
