Shopping: Bring your own container!

Planet South Bank is pleased to introduce a new window sicker campaign for York traders, aimed at encouraging both businesses and their customers to make sustainable decisions whilst shopping.

PSB2We’ve teamed up with the York-based plastic-free business IAmReusable to produce a Bring Your Own ‘BYO’ sticker. The aim is to reduce single use plastic wrapping and packaging on our everyday groceries, by instead encouraging people to bring their own containers to fill at the shops and local businesses.

In recent months major supermarkets chains have started to adapt to increased number of customers choosing to shop more sustainably. Morrison’s seem to be leading the way, and now welcome BYO containers at some of their food counters.

For those who prefer to shop locally, you’ll now find comfort in York traders who display a BYO sticker, knowing the business has a sustainable outlook and will happily fill your own container. Look out for them on Bishopthorpe Road!

PSB1IamReusable has previously launched the Bring Your Own Cup and Water Refill Station stickers, which can be found throughout the city (and beyond) with many small businesses welcoming smart, sustainable customer choices. Planet South Bank has completed a trilogy of sustainable emblems that allow traders to demonstrate their commitment to reducing plastic waste in the city.

Planet South Bank is always interested in encouraging everyone to make sustainable choices and reduce plastic waste – contact us if you have an idea you’d like to explore.
