This week's blog is a little different a copy of the little press release for the new Pop-Up Shop, just to give you all a little idea on what I've been up to.
Felpham village post office is set to host a new pop up shop for local business selling pet supplies with little or no new packaging. On Thursday 8th August customers can buy a variety of pet products in reused, environmentally friendly packaging; or bring their own containers and get just the amount they want weighed out.
Consumers are increasingly aware of their environmental impact, in particular that of single use plastics. The pop-up shop by R and R Pet Services aims to provide customers with the option to purchase high quality products without all the unnecessary packaging.
R and R Pet Services wanted to be able to offer customers the flexibility to buy products with less packaging, without them having to buy in huge bulk amounts. The local business had already started to reuse plastic bottles and other packaging as a way to reduce the amount of single use plastic bags being passed on to customers. The Pop-Up shop offers customers the additional opportunity for customers to bring their own containers and buy just the amount that they want. Reducing waste and cost.
R and R Pet Services owner Rebecca said “The Post office is the perfect place to host pop-up shops for local business and creators. It’s in the heart of the village and I’m really looking forward to sharing zero waste ideas with other pet owners, as well as some homemade vegan dog treats!”
The Pop-up shop will sell loose bird seed, pet bedding and homemade dog treat as well as some home-grown forages for small pets. More information about the zero waste pet Pop-up shop can be found on the R and R Services Website: www.randrpetservices.co.uk and more details about the post office pop-up shop hire can be found on the Felpham post office facebook page.
