Our Top 3 Charities cleaning our Oceans
At The Source Bulk Foods we believe that by making small changes to our daily habits we can reduce the negative impact that our lifestyles have on the planet. We provide a shopping experience that allows customers to cut down the amount of single use plastic they consume by offering foods without any packaging. In the five years since we opened our doors, our eight stores across the United Kingdom and Ireland have contributed significantly to reducing plastic consumption in our communities, a fact that we are incredibly proud of.
This Plastic Free July we want to use our platform to highlight the great work of charities that are working to clean up the damage already done. Here at The Source Bulk Foods, we share these three Ocean Clean up Charities vision for a cleaner, healthier planet. We will be donating to one of these charities at the end of July and will publish how much we have donated at the beginning of August, check back here then to find out!
