Keep an eye out for these colourful buckets in the near future. Hopefully this concept will spread. "Leisure Coast Fruit & Deli" will be trialling these new reusable buckets over the next few weeks in replacement of plastic bags in an effort to reduce their environmental footprint.
Customers are still more than welcome to bring their own reusable checkout bags for the checkout staff to pack the groceries.
"Leisure Coast Fruit & Deli" have implemented several other waste management programs with their meat and deli products, green waste, loose plastic wrapping, recycling paper, cardboard and styrofoam; along with their solar panels that are up and running too.
