Zero Waste: Points of Interest
Did you know that the village has a number of locations or Points of Interest (POIs) where you can recycle unwanted goods or, better still, REUSE empty bottles and jars?
For instance there are FIVE places where you may REFILL water bottles (If just 1 in 10 of villagers did not use single plastic water bottles we would save c20,000 plastic bottles per annum!).
There are FOUR places where you may RECYCLE things. Best of all, the village now has an Eco store (140 Main Street) where you may refill a plethora of products.
