Will we refund you for the extra weeks straight into your bank account, on receipt of your sort code and account number.

Terms & Conditions for our reusable bag scheme
- We, as well as our community, felt time was up for plastic bags. The reusable bag scheme was put forward to all customers in a survey in October 2017. Feedback from customers both on the switch to a reusable bag and the cost associated with the switch was positive. From the poll it was evident that customers would be happy to support a one-off contribution payment.
- As a not for profit enterprise our surpluses are used to pay our staff a fair wage and our suppliers a fair price. By asking for a contribution towards reusable bags we can deliver a much-needed change in our packaging, stay true to our sustainability beliefs whilst ensuring that the same level of financial support flows to the farms we work with.
- We are not a largescale organisation but a local not-for-profit which supports the local community. Part of that community commitment is making smart choices around environmental issues. We are committed to making meaningful changes though progress can sometimes be slower than we would like -whether that be for logistical or financial reasons. The switch to reusable bags has been a major priority for us, we are happy that it has come to fruition and hope that now it is here our customers are happy to support the scheme.
- The £5 contribution supports getting the bags into circulation. It is a one off charge which is matched by Local Greens. The ongoing cost of weekly collection, washing and sorting each bag type and size, damage, loss, repair and renewal will also be covered by Local Greens.
- The scheme is not an 'opt in. With change there are cost implications therefore this scheme is compulsory. We do not want to raise the price of the vegetable and fruit bags as we want to be clear that the cost is not related to the vegetables and fruit but to the logistical change associated with providing an eco-friendly bag offer.
- On leaving the scheme you can ask for the full amount to be reimbursed, this will happen on the condition that all bags have been returned. Alternatively, if you are happy to leave a bit of your contribution within the scheme then you can ask for a denomination of the £5 to be returned.
- We would never charge an account without permission and as a such we include a message on the registration page as well publicly on this page.
