    Smashing food waste with Incredible Bulk

    This month is Plastic Free July, where millions of people around the globe take the challenge to refuse single-use plastics.

    The aim is to see a world without plastic, and to keep our streets, oceans and communities beautiful.

    Last year, 120 million people took part in the challenge and helped to save a staggering 490 million kg of plastic waste.

    We’ve made one incredible change to help us cut down on our single-use plastic consumption.

     

    Cutting down

    Our Community Food Team goes through a lot of food during our FoodWorks cooking courses, and that can mean a lot of packaging.

    So, we’ve teamed up with Incredible Bulk – Cornwall’s mobile zero-waste shop, to supply us with a range of natural, nutritious ingredients.

    We’re really pleased to not only be cutting down on waste, but supporting a local business too!
