“I am constantly reviewing how I can contribute to reducing and hopefully eliminating the use of single use plastic in my shop by liaising with customers and my suppliers alike. I have been aware of the Plastic Free Penzance initiative for a long time and feel its message is reaching many people, and that it’s vital that I am able to support and help promote that message. As a Christmas tip I would say shop local, armed with plenty of your own bags suitable for all weathers!”
