Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
A greener, cleaner Altrincham
As part of the commitment to a greener, cleaner Altrincham, many of the town’s businesses offer incentives for reducing single-use waste. Retailers such as Ginkgo and One Small Step at Altrincham Market offer a refillery so you can stock up on all of your household essentials without the need for packaging.
The BID leads on Refill in Altrincham, a national scheme that aims to connect people with locations where they can eat, drink and shop with less waste. Anyone can download the free app to find local Refill stations near them - participating businesses sign up and pop a sticker in their window, alerting passers-by that they’re welcome to come on in and get a refill.
BID businesses signed up to the Refill scheme include Orangetheory Fitness, The Hive by VH Interiors, Greggs, Nandos and many more. To find out more please email email@example.com
Several businesses also offer an incentive when you bring your own reusable coffee cup - including 20% off your hot drink at Gran T’s Coffee House, double stamps on your loyalty card at Caffe Nero and 25p off at Costa Coffee.
Elite Dress Agency is packed with pre-loved, hand picked, sensational designer fashion at a fraction of its original price.
Altrincham also boasts a fantastic selection of retailers selling pre-loved items such as AgeUK, Scope and the Oxfam Bookshop.
Gran T's Coffee House is also a member of the 'Too Good To Go' App helping to reduce food waste. More information about the app and how the scheme works can be found here.
