Aylesbury woman tackling food and plastic waste

A new market stall is bringing sustainability to Aylesbury.

Set up in 2019 Eco Bonobo has grown from a personal mission to a stall at Aylesbury Market every week. 

Founder Natasha May tried to find a shampoo bar that actually left her hair feeling nourished without the plastic waste, but struggled. 

That's where it all began and now she's trying to get us to think about reducing plastic waste.

Tried and tested by Natasha, her family, her friends, and anyone she can get to listen, she says the items sold are ethical and sustainable.

Now, Eco Bonobo has launched her wholefoods section, with the idea of re-using containers rather than buying things like pasta and rice in plastic wrappers.

Natasha is excited by the move:

"There is no where near where we can go and fill up with the quantity we actually need. 

"Instead of buying a big bag of something and it going off or all this plastic that you're then having to throw away.

"It's just about getting your pantry staples really. Someone can come bring their containers with as much as they want, or as little as they want."
