We're Improving our Green Credentials 0

Over the past 12-18mths we have slowly increased the number and variety of organic products we stock, such as the Cloud9 and Monaluna, and we have made changes to how we operate etc In the workplace we recycle and use environmentally friendly methods for heating etc We also, if you haven't noticed, use mailing bags made from recycled plastic that can also be recycled so do not throw them in your main rubbish bin. You just thought they were boring grey mailing bags didn't you?

Face Masks - Coronavirus Update

Face Masks - Coronavirus Update 0

Up until now, due to conflicting reports on the subject, we have not got involved with the DIY face mask debate. We have not been wanting to make suggestions or give advice without some knowledge on the subject ourselves.
