Hmmm, what about these?

Why refill?

It's World Refill Day, but why do we need to bother? Hold my drink...

Why is organic important?

You'll find a lot of organic produce at Food for Thought refill shop in Wellingborough. Organic benefits us humans, wildlife & the planet. So what is organic & why do we need it?
