The market tries to do our bit by contributing to reducing and reusing. It’s also up to us, as individuals to do our part. A practice that many customers do is very simple and easy to adapt, especially if you come every week. Those little baskets, paper and plastic, that your soft fruits etc. used for the safe travel home, bring them back each week and return to the vendor – they do reuse them. Better yet bring your own re-useable container to take our goodies home in. A few of our vendors are using high quality paper bags that can easily be used multiple times before they have to be recycled. Don’t forget about reusable shopping bags to use to bring the market haul home in too! It’s all very doable and imagine if EVERYONE incorporated this practice into their lifestyles.
