“It’s Zero Waste Shopping!! Every container you fill saves at least 1 piece of single use plastic going to landfill or ending up in the ocean”
I am supporting local businesses by giving them a shout out on my blog. In this blog is Edens Weigh – Walsall.
The Hedgehog caught up with Kat & Mark Poynton, a husband and wife team launching the brand new businessl.
Hi Kat & Mark welcome to The Silver Hedgehog, tell us about your business…
We are a zero waste shop, our main ethos is to reduce single use plastics and encourage people to reuse, recycle and use alternatives to plastics.
Silver Hedgehog Comment:
Why not get some reusable containers to take to Eden’s Weigh or use at home?

Covid lockdowns have had a serious impact on trading, how are you coping?
We launched our business right as the first lockdown took hold. Through word of mouth and social media we have gained a fantastic loyal customer base. Our customers have stood by us brilliantly. So much so we ave been able to launch a click and collect service. I would ask that people look at our social media channels for details. We have also launched a blog providing updates on our progress!!
