Unpackaged food policy

Packaging policy

By purchasing unpackaged goods and recycling you can reduce your carbon footprint.

Our aim is to:

REDUCE the amount packaging and waste,
REUSE packaging like bags and jars, and
RECYCLE as much as possible.

Reducing the amount of packaging is the first step to reducing carbon emissions.  It means that less energy is spent creating the product and less material needs to be recycled.

Reusing bags and jars:  you are invited to bring in your own containers and fill them up with the products that you need.  We also have a range of jars and bags that can be used. 

Recycling packaging:  The co-op attempts to purchase products that are packaged in environmentally friendly packaging i.e. glass, steel, cellophane, paper.  We try to avoid using plastic because it is highly toxic to manufacture.  We also recycle as much as we can including our bulk containers, tins, jars, bags, etc.
