“Somehow it’s become the norm that everything has to come in plastic. But actually, when you get rid of it, it doesn’t take long before people get used to it not being there. For example plastic bags – when we stopped offering them nobody complained at all. I was a bit worried that some people would, so it was a nice surprise that the response was all positive.
The biggest issue I have in the business is suppliers using plastic sleeves, particularly for cards. But I am going to making sure I mention Plastic Free Penzance to them all so they know what we are trying to achieve. Hopefully, it might make them think about other ways they can package their products.”
