Little Green Refill Super Structure

by Little Green - Sarah Cochrane in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, United Kingdom

We did it
On 29th August 2019 we successfully raised £4,129 with 194 supporters in 41 days

We aim to expand our current refill station to build a structure that includes food items as well as liquids, cutting down on plastic waste.

New stretch target

We would like to expand on the services we provide, through the cafe, health food shop and delivery service. Outdoor catering is also something we have occasionally provided and we would like to expand to prepare and deliver our healthy and tasty plant based food far and wide.

When we first discussed our ideas and plans to open a plant based cafe and health food shop, a huge part of it was to be as eco-friendly and kind to the planet as possible. Having a refill station so people can come in and help themselves to various liquids, using their own containers and therefore cutting down on plastic was important to us and we set up a small station in the cafe. This has proven popular with our customers as there isn’t anything like this in our immediate area but there is much more we would like to do. We have taken example from other businesses and are looking to build a bigger structure providing more options including foods such as grains and rice so more customers can visit and help themselves thus cutting out packaging. 

All of this is part of our committment  to providing tasty, healthy food, great nutritional advice through our resident nutritionist Gareth with vitamins and products to suit your needs and a lasting committment to be kind to our planet. We would really love to expand on the services we provide to as many as possible.
