MetiNews.Com - Get on the eco bandwagon and reduce your plastic waste
Breaking News ! We are all looking for ways we can reduce our plastic waste; or if we aren’t, we should be. Luckily there are organisations here to help us: for instance, local dairies such as Rodda’s and Trewithen, which have responded to increasing demand for milk refill stations across the county. Bring your clean bottles to refill, the old-fashioned way. Here’s our guide to where you can do it: North Cornwall Bodmin Celtic Produce, 90 Beacon Rd, Bodmin PL31 1AW This hidden gem up on the hill near the obelisk has great fruit and veg, dried legumes and health food, and a next door cafe selling coffee/tea and bacon baps. It's also got its own parking.
