When we were contacted by Chloe & Robin Masefield earlier this month they wanted to find a banner for their shop Natural Weigh in Crickhowell, Powys which would be in keeping wth their company’s philosophy…a Sails and Canvas recycled sailcloth shop front sign was a great solution!

Natural Weigh is one of a growing number of zero waste shops offering the consumer an alternative way to shop for their groceries, where shoppers can refill and reuse containers (even paper bags) and make a stand against excessive and wasteful supermarket packaging. It is at the forefront of everyone’s minds that packaging has to change and shops like Natural Weigh are thankfully popping up all over the country – In our home town, “Nourish of Topsham” zero waste shop has just picked up first place for retailer of the year at the Exeter Living Awards 2019…congratulations to Sarah!

A recent article in The Guardian featuring Natural Weigh makes for a very interesting read…the time for changing our shopping habits is here and now. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
