Bags of Good

In February of this year we started charging 5p for a carrier bag in an effort to encourage people to bring their own bags to the shop. We do our best to reduce, re-use and recycle within the business and your support is much appreciated. However there is an upside to not bringing your own bag as the carrier bag fee since February has amounted to £800! This money has been distributed to local schools and several have written to us describing which projects have been supported. Recently Probus School have used our donation to buy apple trees for their new orchard. Mevagissey School is developing its new gardening club, Gorran school is using the donation to support their art week and Tywardreath School’s project is the refurbishment of the swimming pool. Other schools which have benefited are, St Mewan, Tregony, Charlestown, Grampound, Veryan & Grampound Road.

So, try to remember to bring your bag but if you don’t, don’t panic, you’re supporting a good cause!
