The Eco Shop opens in Great Casterton to help people ditch plastic
People keen to ditch the plastic from their shopping baskets can do more for the environment thanks to a new venture.
This month Michelle Martell opened The Eco Shop opposite Casterton College in Great Casterton - and it was frustration that helped prompt her dramatic change of career.
“When I settled down to have children I became upset by the amount of single-use plastic that gets thrown away because it can’t be recycled,” she said. “I wanted to do my bit for the environment and make plastic-free shopping available to more people.”
