Eco-warriors at Potters

Two young Eco-Warriers have helped to sell reusable alternatives to single–use plastic in Potters Cookshop, Hockley. Lucas and Lucas from Plumberow Primary Academy recently spent a morning as ‘guest’ ambassadors for sustainable living in the cookshop.

The two students talked to customers about the importance of change and pointed out sustainable products to customers such as bees wax wrap as an alternative to clingfilm.

“It was a pleasure to have our guests at Potters Cookshop and to see such passion in our youngsters regarding eco-issues,” said director Tom Carter.

The link-up with local schools follows on from Potters’ window that highlighted the shocking extent of single-use plastic in the oceans. The main window featured a whales’ tail made of bottles, a turtle made of plastic wrapping, a milk bottle iceberg and a polar bear tangled up in fishing net. Customers contributed to the collection of over 1000 bottles for the window.

Potters Cookshop is now working with two local schools on how they can help reduce waste. The retailer is planning to do an event at Plumberow Primary Academy where children can fanfare and help to sell alternatives to single-use plastic.
