Booths a more sustainable retailer in Kendal

Northern retailer Booths, who have a store in Wainwright’s Yard in Kendal, produce some brilliant witty regional cotton re-useable bags.

Slogans include ‘Cumbria not Umbria’, ‘Wuthering Bites’, ‘The Cake District’ and ‘Much Ado about Mutton’. They are even good enough to be given as gifts and they have been making us smile since the company brought them out in 2016. It was an inspired response to legislation brought into to reduce litter and encourage sustainable bag use.

And now they have brought back traditional brown paper bags, made from recycled paper, for fruit and vegetables as part of wide-ranging measures to reduce their use of plastic.

The new paper bags have a see-through paper panel and a wide gusset that means they are deceptively large.

Much of their fruit and veg is displayed loose so it’s easy to avoid pre-packed and the plastic that can come with that.

Other measures they are taking to be a more sustainable and environmentally friendly retailer include switching their soft drink options in the café fridges to glass bottles and cans rather than plastic bottles, both of which are easily recyclable.
