Green stickers are starting to appear around Southwell in the windows of local retailers who are offering alternatives to single-use packaging.

They allow customers to buy their products in containers brought from home, whether that is dry goods or hot drinks, and in some cases encourage it through discounts.

Participating retailers including the Little Eco Loft, The Pet Shop, Handicentre and Sweets of Southwell are listed on https://greensouthwell.org.uk/refill. If you have a refill option for your customers, please head there to register. The scheme is open to retailers and community groups in the wider area.
