Brilliant initiative! There are a number of zero-plastic shops that offer dried fruits, nuts, grain and cereals but I haven't seen any that offers bulk liquids to re-fill. An idea worth exploring?

I love the concept of this project - it is definitely one way we need to go to help our planet. I only wish I lived in the Tisbury area and can use 'Tis The Future directly.

I will you every success it sounds like a great scheme and if / when it's a success hopefully can be a model for others. I am not local but will watch with interest and maybe one day catch you in passing.

Such a fantastic idea which our family will be wholeheartedly supporting. Perhaps the community could make recipes cards based on the ingredients in the bus to share via the bus and how about a community based meal (share a plate style) for those that use the bus and invite a friend that doesn't? So many ideas - so excited for you all. Please let us know in what other ways we can help.

A fantastic idea that has the potential to transform our way of life and influence others to do the same. Everyone at Pythouse Kitchen Garden is very excited to be part of it. Here's to the future.
