Stonewall Store is making strides in environmental conservation while providing economic benefits to the community, by slashing the pricing on its Bulk Bin options.

Shoppers at Stonewall can now get almost 40% off when choosing bulk bins over pre-packaged goods. For instance, the switch to bulk for everyday items like rolled oats translates to over a 20% reduction in price, while sunflower seeds shows an even more significant decrease, at more than 60%.

The move comes amid a wider push towards achieving council’s zero-waste by 2040 goal. With the Claris Landfill now closed every reduction in packaging means less waste being transferred off the island.
