When you buy a product from us on our market, it will come in either a brown paper bag or a cardboard tub, both of which are completely recyclable! We love it when you bring your own bags and boxes too. We sell our own BrownBread canvas bags and plastic bags at 5p a time (which will be donated to charity) but again, it's great when you bring your own.
We try to bring exactly what we need to our markets so that we have as little left over as possible. There will however always be days where we don't get it right. Nothing that is left is wasted. We work with a horse farmer and stale bread will make horse feed. Some products get discounted the next day, we make breadcrumbs and our wonderful Bread Pudding!
All of our cardboard packaging gets recycled. We don't have very much plastic waste but we're working on firstly cutting it down and recycling that too.
We keep all of our vehicles updated so that they all have Euro 6 engines which are the most efficient avalible on the market. This means that we're reducing the amount of harmful exhaust emissions to improve air quality.
