It’s really been a week like no other and it’s unlikely there’ll be any let up for the foreseeable future. Many events are getting cancelled due to covid-19, including this weekend’s St.Patrick’s Day Festival which should have been taking place on Sunday so don’t turn up at Trafalgar Sq.
We know some of you are already staying at home, others – for now, anyway – want to crack on as normal. Whatever you choose to do keep WASHING YOUR HANDS and stay well.
If you’re near Covent Garden on Saturday and you’ve just had a sandwich, a KFC, sushi – in fact, anything that involves recyclable packaging don’t just chuck it in the nearest bin. Instead, keep your hands on it and take it along to this Montezuma’s pop up.
The gorgeous chocolate brand is now offering 100% sustainable packaging on their entire chocolate range. To mark the occasion it’s inviting you to come along and swap your unwanted packaging for FREEBIE chocolate at their Waste Not, Want Not Shop.
“We hope it will inspire people to make better choices when it comes to food. If everyone makes small changes, the positive impact on the environment will be huge.” says their MD, Bruce Alexander.
