Why have a shop?

Australians use 10 million new plastic bags every day. Plastic bags and plastic film are disposable and cannot be recycled in our kerbside collection. SCEG believes that by replacing disposable bags and film with reusable items we will  reduce our ecological footprint
Therefore we are offering for sale reusable mesh veggie bags (Onya and Greensacks) and fresh lids.

Australians send 30 million plastic toothbrushes to landfill each year. Plastics take hundreds of years to break down and are a major contributor to ocean gyres  . Why not try our compostable bamboo toothbrushes. We have been selling these at our market stalls for a couple of years now and they’ve proved very popular.

We also have eco batteries sizes AA, AAA and 9V.  These batteries contain no lead, cadmium or mercury and are therefore disposable in landfill.

We have sourced some beautiful handmade paper- made locally from recycled paper and also have a selection of Fowlers vacola jars, rings and seals for all your preserving needs.
