Our Children Are Our Future!
We are Mum’s. As well as bringing this service to communities we will engage children in learning about how plastic waste affects our world. We believe educating our children about this problem is a key way to implement change. We will also educate children on healthy eating. Let’s get them engaged and involved! Our mission is to take plastic free grocery shopping directly to the people of West Dorset, stopping in markets, villages & neighbourhoods.” Turn Lyme Green and Plastic Free Lyme Regis wish them every success.

WASTE NOT WANT NOT – LOCAL FOOD SHOP IN BRIDPORT
Lydia opened her shop in spring 2018 in South Street, Bridport. Dorset’s first zero waste shop. “We sell organic, unpackaged, plant based wholefoods. You can take back control with our weigh your own system and can purchase as much or as little as you choose. Bring a container of your choice along to the shop, weigh, fill, weigh again and pay.
Rejoice in plastic free shopping!” Good luck, Lydia, with this wonderful shop.
LOVE FOOD, HATE WASTE
Love Food, Hate Waste is an campaign adopted by Dorset County Council. The staff involved are always interested to learn about events which they can attend with lots of information and promotional materials.
