MOVING TO SCARBOROUGH HAD A BIG IMPACT ON US

Seeing all the beach trash made us really think about how much plastic ends up in our oceans.

WHAT WE'RE DOING IN STORE
Refill Scheme
Refill Scheme

We're now looking into ways to provide a refill scheme in store.

Re-use Policy
Re-use Policy

Where our suppliers will allow, we can send their packaging back to be refilled and re-used. Ask in store for more info.

Recycle

Where refilling or re-using is not an option, we'll donate any returned plastic packaging to TerraCycle's recycle schemes locally.

AND WE'RE CONTINUING TO REDUCE PLASTIC FROM OUR PRODUCT RANGE IN OUR BID TO BECOME A SURFER'S AGAINST SEWAGE PLASTIC-FREE BUSINESS CHAMPION.

WHAT WE'RE DOING LOCALLY

We 're proud to support local and national organisations, who are just as passionate about reducing plastic waste as we are.

We attend organised beach cleans, and help advertise these causes on our social media, and in our Scarborough shop.

We regularly meet up with local plastic-free organisations like No More Trash,  Plastic Free Scarborough,  MCS, Surfers Against Sewage and other like-minded businesses to see how we can help their local campaigns.

We're also launching a "Borrow a Bucket" scheme for Scarborough South Bay.

 

In a bid to reduce the amount of buckets and spades left on our beaches in the peak tourist season, we're asking visitors to borrow a set of beach toys, instead of buying new ones which will, more often than not, end up thrown away at the end of the holiday.

MOLLY HAS ALWAYS LOVED A PLASTIC BOTTLE

So we thought we'd put that natural obsession  to good use on our beach cleans and walks.

Molly now fetches discarded plastic bottles whenever we're out. She gets a huge reward for retrieving them, and gets to go find another once we've put it in the bin (where it belongs!).

She has also started to dig out ghost fishing nets and ropes and other bits of discarded plastic on the beach.

She's a good girl!

COME VISIT MOLLY IN OUR SCARBOROUGH SHOP

Molly is normally sat on the step at the entrance to the shop. She loves a cuddle from passers by. Come say hello, she'd love to see you.

 

Plastic Free Skincare

The products in this section come in completely plastic-free packaging.

Some of the product labels (and adhesives) contain plastic - so please remove before re-using, recycling or composting. We're working on replacing all labels with eco-friendly alternatives.
