As we reel from the avalanche of news about damage to the climate and the environment from plastic and other pollution, the owners of the district’s first dedicated “eco-shop” are celebrating its first birthday on 1st August. The sustainable message of helping customers to help the environment whilst minimising the use of plastics has seen FINK Home and Nature blossom over the past year with customers now coming from all over the area.
“We stock a broad selection of environmentally friendly household cleaning and laundry products, as well as ethical beauty ranges and giftware”, says owner Sharon Longcroft. “We also make sure that pets and gardens are looked after with everything from bee bombs to meal worms.”
With over 20 eco lines ‘on tap’, including products from several Yorkshire companies (household items from Hull-based Bio D and natural ethical skincare from York-based Cosy Cottage), FINK Home and Nature hopes that the variety and diversity of its offer will encourage customers to visit more often and make refills and eco-shopping part of their normal routine.
“People worry about whether doing the right thing for the planet will be bad for their wallets,” adds Sharon, “but we align our prices as closely as we can to supermarket prices for similar products and never compromise on quality.”
To celebrate its 1st birthday, FINK Home and Nature is launching a new Refill Loyalty Card to encourage regular refills, with 10% off the 10th top up.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to make the switch to eco-friendly products,” concludes co-owner Hugh Fink. “We know that people are worried about the environmental impact of pollution and plastics and we’re here to give them an alternative way to shop.”
REFILL – REUSE – RESPECT
