Doing Our Bit For The Environment!

You many have noticed that a few months back that we installed compost buckets next to our market rubbish bins, well now were going a step further!

Monavale Blueberries and Luxe Mobile Espresso both have compostable cups, lids and plates which are made from cornstarch and other such biodegradable materials. To help us cut down on the landfill the markets created each week, we now have large green compost bins. 

We would really appreciate it if you would dispose of the usual compost items like food and liquids along with cups, lids and plates from Monavale and Luxe in these green  bins.

Remembers if it's 'green' it goes into a green bin! Thanks for your help in making the markets a more environmentally aware place to shop and catch up with friends and family.
